Call for papers STS-Meeting Stockholm, May 2-4, 2012
KTH Royal Institute of Technology
May 2-4, 2012
Convener: Division of History of Science and Technology, KTH
Deadline: February 15, 2012
Dear STS scholars in Sweden and beyond,
We would like to invite you to the Swedish STS-meeting 2012, which will take place at KTH Royal Institute of Technology Stockholm from May 2 to May 4. In the tradition of STS meetings in earlier years, we seek to bring together the diverse and dispersed community of STS, to provide room for presenting current research, exchanging ideas, discussing projects, and networking.
Confirmed keynote speakers:
- Rebecca M. Herzig, historian of science and professor of Women and Gender Studies at Bates College, Maine, USA (opening lecture on Wednesday, May 2)
- Alf Hornborg, cultural anthropologist and professor at the Human Ecology Division at Lund University (plenary talk before final panel discussion on Friday, May 4).
We encourage submission of proposals for individual papers and entire panels. Thematically open, we welcome contributions from all STS-related fields, from history, sociology, and philosophy of science, technology, and environment, to provide the broadest spectrum of STS-related research in and beyond Sweden.
Moreover, we seek suggestions for alternative formats. These could be, among others, roundtables debating the hotspots issues in the field and/or of public interest or author-meets-critic sessions on recent publication.
To be as inclusive as possible we plan to have a bilingual meeting and ask for presentations held in Swedish or in English; suggestions for whole sessions should be monolingual either in Swedish or in English.
Please send your proposal (no more than 400 words andcontaining your institutional affiliation) to [] by February 15, 2012. Inquiries are also welcome at this address.
The organizing committee:
Nina Wormbs, Sabine Höhler, Adam Netzén
