The 8th STS Italia Conference  will
be hosted by the University of Trieste, Italy, June 18 through 20, 2020,
by the Italian Society of Science and Technology Studies.

The conference will be an opportunity to present empirical and
theoretical work from a variety of disciplines: sociology, anthropology,

The focal theme of the 8th STS Italia Conference will be "Dis/Entangling
Technoscience: Vulnerability, Responsibility and Justice”. This broad
theme refers to the complex and ambivalent role of technoscience and
innovation in constituting societies – making possibilities flourish,
but also creating new vulnerabilities.

The conference will include 33 tracks, which are clustered into five
thematic streams. The tracks focus on several topics, including:
biomedicine, digital platforms and  media, work and organizations,
expertise and public policy, ethics of technology and innovation, and
governance of  science and technology at large.

Conference’s keynote speakers include: Amade M’charek (University of
Amsterdam); Dimitris Papadopoulos (University of Nottingham) and René
von Schomberg

language) should be submitted by February, 9
