Call for papers
4S and EASST are opening up now a call for papers and closed sessions for their 2016 Joint Meeting that will take place from August 31st to September 3rd in Barcelona. Titled “Science & technology by other means: Exploring collectives, spaces and futures”, it aims at exploring how science and technology are increasingly performed, shaped and developed ‘by other means’: in a variety of exploratory activities that include the articulation of collectives that do not fit with the traditional actors and institutions in science and technology, or in ways that problematize the established hegemonies involved in the production of knowledge and technologies.
This call invites not just traditional papers based on up-front power-point presentations but it also encourages the proposal of alternative forms of communication and interaction: new ways and new media for presenting, sharing, producing and disseminating research projects and outcomes. Participation in the conference will be limited to a maximum of two interventions per person: only one paper presentation and an optional additional engagement in other activities in the conference (e.g. acting as session chair or discussant). Deadline for the submission of abstracts to open tracks and for the closed track submission : February 21st 2016
