Reminder: CfP STS MIGTEC Paper Workshop

Dear colleagues,

consider this as a friendly reminder that the deadline to submit paper
abstracts to the first STS-MIGTEC paper workshop is approaching next week:
30 September 2020.

The workshop might be of interest for scholars working at the intersection
of STS and critical migration, security, surveillance, or border studies.

Please consider submitting an abstract either to open panels
corresponding to the overarching questions (see below and attachment)
or to thematic
(see attachment)!

First STS-MIGTEC Paper Workshop ONLINE 25-26 January 2021 Call for Papers

The first STS-MIGTECH Paper Workshop invites scholars to present and
discuss current work in several panels, to plan and prepare future
network research activities, and to think about interventions beyond
academic research. We invite you to submit your paper proposal, which
are concerned with (but not limited to) the following questions:

• How are migrant subjects shaped and affected by migration and border
technologies? How do migrant subjects enact, subvert, appropriate them?
• How do migration and border technologies shape transnational migration
and border regimes?
• How are migration/ border technologies and border control practices
• What is the role of alternative, interventionist or oppositional
technologies and infrastructures that are enacted by migrant subjects
themselves or other actors in solidarity with migrant subjects?
• Which material and epistemic politics are involved in this enactment?
• What power effect does such involvement produce?
• What are ways to critically and publicly engage with technologies and
infrastructures of migration and border control?

You can submit your paper proposal either to to an open panel (addressing
the overarching questions above) or to 2 specific thematic panels (see
attachment below):

Please submit title, abstract (up to 250 words), and authors of the paper,
incl. affiliations and short bios (75 words
) until 30 September 2020 to

Variety of topics linking STS and
critical migration/border/security/surveillance studies is welcome.

Best wishes,

Silvan Pollozek
on behalf of the STS MIGTEC conference team
