[Call for Papers] World(s)-making practices through caring and commoning - Deadline June 14th, 2023

                ***Apologies for crossposting***

The Call for Papers for the special issues " World(s)-making practices 
through caring and commoning"  to be published on Tecnoscienza - Italian 
Journal of Science and Technology Studies is still open to receive 

The overarching interest of this call is to problematize, reflect and 
investigate research engagements within care and commoning practices and 
is driven by questions such as: what does it mean to approach the 
commons as matters of care? How do we, as scholars, navigate the 
tensions, alignments, synergies, overlaps, or ruptures between our 
research agendas and knowledge politics with those of the commons? How 
does engaging with and researching the commons with care affect our 
researchers’ selves and our fields? What can an engagement with 
commoning practices tell us about care? What renewed theoretical, 
empirical, or methodological understandings do we gain by engaging with 
those assemblages that attend to the making and imagining of fairer and 
more sustainable futures through the lenses of care and commoning?

Guest editors Giacomo Poderi (IT University of Copenhagen), 
Mariacristina Sciannamblo (“Sapienza” University of Rome) and Maurizio 
Teli (Aalborg University) invite you to submit papers aimed at 
investigating e the relationships and interplay between STS 
intervention-oriented research and those world-making practices that try 
to either maintain and repair our world and to re-enchant and 
re-configure it in multiple post-capitalist, post-humanist or post- 
developmental ways.

The call (see attachment) welcomes contributions covering a wide range 
of topics and application domains, which can include (but are not 
limited to):
• disciplinary intersections and contaminations among STS, design, and 
commons studies;
• knowledge co-creation, co-design processes, material publics and 
grassroot innovation in commoning practices, environmental activism, and 
sustainability transition in and through STS;
• the precariousness, mundane, often-neglected, everyday work in care 
and commoning practices;
• the becoming into commoners as affective and relational practices of 
care and co-becoming;
• theoretical and methodological approaches for action-research, 
participatory design, or research as intervention as forms of caring and 
• complexities, opportunities, ruptures, and contradictions in making 
new alliances between researchers, activists, local populations, and 
• sites of ambivalence and contradictions in caring and commoning practices.
Deadline for abstract submissions: June 14th, 2023*
Abstracts (in English) with a maximum length of 500 words should be sent 
as email
attachments to
