The 8th STS Italia Conference "Dis/Entangling Technoscience. Vulnerability, Responsibility and Justice" will take place in Trieste, on June 17-19, 2021.
We are now opening an additional call for tracks about "Science and Technology Studies in a (post)-pandemic age", as part of the upcoming conference.
The 8th STS Italia Conference will be held in Trieste, Italy, (June 17-19, 2021), by the Italian Society of Science and Technology Studies, in collaboration with the Department of Political and Social Sciences of the University of Trieste.
The major theme refers to the complex and ambivalent role of technoscience and innovation in constituting societies – making possibilities flourish, but also creating new vulnerabilities. The conference will welcome empirical and theoretical contributions addressing diverse aspects of the social study of science, technology and innovation from different disciplines and fields, such as anthropology, economics, design, history, law, philosophy, political science, psychology, semiotics and sociology.
