Richard Tutton (University of York)

I am the Co-Director of the Science and Technology Studies Unit (SATSU) at the University of York in the UK. I have worked in the field of STS for twenty years and co-chaired the Local Organising Committee for the EASST 2018 conference at Lancaster. I have recently completed one term as a member of EASST Council, during which time I served in different roles, including administering the EASST Fund, chairing the Amsterdamska Book prize, and being a member of the future conferences sub-group. I have also been an ‘active citizen’ in the wider STS community, joining the 4S 2022 Program Committee and the Madrid 2022 Scientific Committee. I have had a very positive experience of serving on EASST Council, even with the challenges of the past two years, and would very much welcome the opportunity to continue the work that I have started! To this position, I combine considerable experience of conference organisation, leadership of STS research centres, with a strong commitment to supporting the STS community in Europe (and beyond). Further, I have a positive and inclusive attitude to working with colleagues and very much enjoy the challenges of working across national borders.
