"Ontological Overflows and the Politics of Absence: Algorithms and Modellers at the European Centre for Disease Control and Prevention"

By Francis Lee

This paper suggests that STS needs to start attending to what I dub ontological overflows. My argument is that the methodological principle of “follow the actors” has led to STS analyses taking over the matters of concern of our interlocutors. Our informants’ concerns and objects, becoming our concerns and objects.
