The Swedish STS Conference 2024 invites you to submit abstracts and proposals
for sessions!
This years theme is Transmissions, Mediations, Interferences.

The Swedish STS Conference is an open, widely advertised, biennial conference,
organized since 2006. It is an interdisciplinary meeting place for researchers
interested in issues related to technology and science in society as
approached from social science and humanities perspectives.

The conference takes place 3-4 October 2024 at the Museum of Work in
Hosts and organisers: TEMA Technology and Social Change (TEMA T) and TEMA
Gender Studies (TEMA G), Linkping University

Theme: With this years theme, we invite scholars to explore critically the
dynamism and social life of both conventional and norm-breaking transmission
of research in the broad sense of the term, and at all stages of the research
process. We ask what frictions transmissions - as mediations, as
interferences, and as transgressions - bring about? What is their generative
potential in different contexts, and for different researchers? Which
boundaries are affirmed, and which are unsettled through (un)orthodox modes of
transmission, (un)conventional media upon which research relies, or the
(un)expected and dispersed - dandelion like - afterlives of our research when
it is out "in the wild"?

The conference calls for papers and sessions (also outside of the conference
theme), in Swedish, Danish, Norwegian or English. The conference welcomes
conventional sessions, but also the exploration of alternative formats,
including but not limited to fishbowls, roundtables, workshops, show-and-tell
sessions to explore these questions. The organising committee will welcome
suggestions from participants.

- Kat Jungnickel, Goldsmiths, University of London.
- Laura Watts, University of Copenhagen and Linkping University.
The keynotes will provide inspiration through a joint talk and workshops with
the conference participants. They will mobilise and put in action evocative
examples from their own practice.

Papers and sessions proposals deadline: 17 May 2024
Notice of acceptance is given no later than 7 June 2024
Registration closes on 1 September 2024
