8th STS ITALIA CONFERENCE
vulnerability, responsibility and justice
JUNE 18-20, 2020 : VIII STS Italia Conference : University of Trieste
We regret to inform that the STS Italia Conference “Dis/Entangling Technoscience" scheduled for June 18-20, 2020 in Trieste, will be postponed due to the current Coronavirus pandemic.
We believe this is the right thing to do, in order to protect the health and safety of those who planned to attend the STS Italia Conference, as well as to help minimise the potential spread of the Covid-19 virus in Italy and beyond.
The conference is tentatively rescheduled for June 17-19, 2021. We believe such a long postponement is necessary to ensure the widest participation to the conference, as we expect increasing restrictions to internal and international mobility in the coming months across a number of countries in Europe and beyond.
The new date will be confirmed in April 2020 and the new, complete timeline of the conference will be provided by the end of May 2020, including the new registration deadlines.
The 8th STS Italia Conference will be held in Trieste, Italy, (tentatively rescheduled for 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.
The new timeline of the conference will be provided by the end of May 2020
