On the Tacit Governance of Research by Uncertainty

Abstrakt

The experience of uncertainties in exploring the unknown—and dealing
with them—is a key characteristic of what it means to be a life science
researcher, but we have only started to understand how this characteristic
shapes cultures of knowledge production, particularly in times when
other—more social—uncertainties enter the field. Although the lab
studies tradition has explored the workings of epistemic uncertainties, the
range of potent uncertainty experiences in research cultures has been
broadened within the neoliberal reorganization of academic institutions.
