The 8th STS Italia Conference under the title "Dis/Entangling Technoscience: Vulnerability, Responsibility and Justice” to be held at the University of Trieste, Italy, on 18-20 June, by the Italian Society of Science and Technology Studies.
Participants will have the chance to present empirical and theoretical work from a variety of disciplines: sociology, anthropology, design, economics, history, law, philosophy, psychology and semiotics. This broad 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 include 33 tracks, clustered into five thematic streams. The tracks focus on several topics, including: biomedicine, digital platforms and media, work and organisations, expertise and public policy, ethics of technology and innovation, and governance of science and technology at large.
Keynote speakers: Amade M’charek (University of Amsterdam); Dimitris Papadopoulos (University of Nottingham) and René von Schomberg (European Commission).
Abstract submission (Deadline extended until 21 February): please submit your abstracts in English, or in Italian in case of tracks in two languages to the conference email address (email@example.com) and to the emails of convenors' selected track. Track Convenor(s) will be responsible for reviewing, accepting/rejecting and organising submissions in their track.
