Digital Infrastructures in Science: Modes of Collaboration, Forms of Sociability and “Ways of Knowing”

The development of information infrastructures for scientific research (shared databases, collaboration platforms) has accelerated considerably in recent years, contributing to essential changes in research practices. This project aims to study how digital infrastructures and devices in scientific communities are transforming collaborative modalities, forms of sociability and “ways of knowing”. In other words, what are the “ways of knowing” embedded in digital infrastructures and devices and what knowledge regimes do they promote? Moreover, how do digital infrastructures and devices transform the conditions of knowledge production, dissemination, and circulation? More specifically, this project focuses on data infrastructures in environmental sciences.


Florence Millerand heads the project (ongoing; PAFARC funding 2018–2019), co-led by Karen Baker.
