Here you can download resources, slides and the bibliography from the WTMC Summer School “Opening Up Diversity”, where we focused on Open Science, its relation to diversity within and beyond research practices, and its role in contemporary science and science policy.
Starting as a network in 1987, WTMC is the KNAW-accredited Netherlands graduate research school of Science, Technology & Modern Culture. Pluralistic in disciplines, study objects and methodologies, it organises five one-day events per year as well as a week-long Summer School.
Anchor teacher for the 2022 WTMC Summer School was Sabina Leonelli, delivering the first lecture of every day as well as being involved in discussions throughout the days. Guest lecturers included Susan Legêne, Michela Massimi, Bart Penders, Jeannette Pols, Alana Helberg-Proctor and Maud Radstake; school coordinators were Anne Beaulieu and Andreas Weber.
