In early December 2021, Rossella Alba, Anja Klein and Krystin Unverzagt organized a 2-day workshop on situated modeling together with colleagues and collaborators from the Potsdam institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK) and the Stockholm Resilience Center (SRC).

The researchers came together to engage in a first exploration on the possibility of doing “situated modeling”, inspired by Donna Haraway’s call to produce situated knowledges. Intense discussion ensued, grounded in own work in model building, interdisciplinary collaboration around models and ethnographic studies of modeling practices.

A follow-up in spring 2022 and a joint paper are in the making.
