Dear colleagues,

please consider submitting an abstract for the first STS-MIGTEC Paper Workshop.

STS-MIGTEC is an independent network of scholars at the intersection of science and technology studies (STS) and critical migration, security and border studies. It seeks to bring researchers from different disciplines and around the world together and to initiate scientific exchange to produce synergies for relevant knowledge production.

First STS-MIGTEC Paper Workshop ONLINE
25-26 January 2021
Call for Papers

The first STS-MIGTECH Paper Workshop invites scholars to present and discuss current work in several panels, to plan future network research activities, and to think about interventions beyond academic research. We invite you to submit your paper proposal, which are concerned with (but not limited to) the following questions:

• How are migrant subjects shaped and affected by migration and border technologies? How do migrant subjects enact, subvert, appropriate them?
• How do migration and border technologies shape transnational migration and border regimes?
• How are migration/ border technologies and border control practices co-shaped?
• What is the role of alternative, interventionist or oppositional technologies and infrastructures that are enacted by migrant subjects themselves or other actors in solidarity with migrant subjects?
• Which material and epistemic politics are involved in this enactment?
• What power effect does such involvement produce?
• What are ways to critically and publicly engage with technologies and infrastructures of migration and border control?

You can submit your paper proposal either to 2 out of 3 specific thematic panels, or to an open panel (see attachment below):

Please submit title, abstract (up to 250 words), and authors of the paper, incl. affiliations and short bios (75 words) until 30 September 2020 to

Variety of topics linking STS and critical migration/border/security/surveillance studies is welcomed.

Best wishes,

the STS MIGTEC conference team
