Call for Papers

Sixth International Undergraduate Research Conference on Science, Technolog= y, Medicine, and Society

To be held online by the University of Toronto March 24-25, 2022

Conference Theme: The Interaction of Science, Technology, & Medicine and Po= litics

Keynote Speaker: Maya J. Goldenberg, Associate Professor, Philosophy, Colle= ge of Arts, University of Guelph. Author of Vaccine Hesitancy: Public Trust= , Expertise, and the War on Science (University of Pittsburgh Press, 2021)

It has long been thought that the relation between science and politics is = an uneasy one: politics covets power, while science seeks apolitical truth.= Scholars from the history, philosophy, and social studies of science have = investigated the interactions between science and politics to unearth a com= plex web where science and politics co-evolve and are co-produced. What int= eractions lead science to shape political policies, and political environme= nts to influence science? What lies at the intersection of science and poli= tics?

The Sixth International Undergraduate Research Conference on Science, Techn= ology, Medicine, and Society at the University of Toronto invites student s= ubmissions that examine the interaction between politics and science, inclu= ding science policy, science funding, politicization of science and scienti= zation of politics, political influences on science, as well as other topic= s regarding the mutual influence between science and politics. We also invi= te submissions on other issues related to STM in historical and present soc= ieties throughout the world. As an interdisciplinary gathering, we encourag= e students to submit papers from across the arts, humanities, social scienc= es, and natural sciences - check out our Facebook page for past presentatio= ns.

We are specifically interested in current issues surrounding: COVID pandemi= c, climate change, data privacy, AI and warfare, vaccine hesitancy.

Interested students should submit an abstract (250 words) and a brief bio (= 50 words) by January 10, 2022 using the following link: https://easychair.o= rg/conferences/?conf=3Dstms2022.
