CFP: Experimenting Participatory Innovation (special issue for Science as Culture)

Deadline: 15th of January 2019 (abstracts)

Special Issue for Science as Culture: Experimenting Participatory

Editors: Hadrien Macq and Pierre Delvenne (SPIRAL, University of Liège)

This special issue welcomes contributions scrutinizing the evolving
relationship between innovation, participation and political identity under
the language, practices and processes of experimentation. For more
information, please see the attached CFP. Papers may include the following

- What roles do experiments in innovation play in the (re)invention
of political identities? How are political identities shaped by these new
collective experiments? How is the role of public authorities reconfigured?
- Why are experiments in innovation promoted and enacted? How do
contextual dynamics affect the promotion of such experiments, and the types
of conducted experiments?
- How are innovations made available for experimentation?
- How do experiments reconfigure conventional innovation policies?
(e.g. notionally driven by technology and/or markets?)
- What forms of power emerge in related experiments? Who are the
publics in these configurations? Who benefits from the innovation(s) that
might be produced?


Abstracts should summarise the argument within approx. 250 words, as
required by the SaC editorial guidelines

Abstracts are requested by the 15th of January, 2019.

Please send your abstract to both Hadrien Macq ( and
Pierre Delvenne ( with “Experimenting
Participatory Innovation” in the email subject.

For those asked to send full papers, these will be expected by the 1st of
April, 2019.

Pierre and Hadrien
