CfA: Sociomaterial Intimacy EASST/4S 2024

Dear colleagues,

We welcome abstracts for the panel Sociomaterial Intimacy we are organizing at the 2024 quadrennial joint meeting of the European Association for the Study of Science and Technology (EASST) and the Society for Social Studies of Science (4S) - 16 – 19 July 2024

Venue: Athena Institute at Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam (VU).

Panel title: Sociomaterial Intimacy: Reflecting on Loving, Caring, and Translating Technology

Convenors: Roberta Spada (Politecnico di Milano) & Stefano Crabu (University of Padova)

Short description: By considering both maintenance and repair, and care and affect, we call for looking at the sociomaterial order by analysing unnoticed (intimate) gestures and operations happening between human and non-human agents when repairing, caring for, loving, and translating technologies into action.

The full call and abstract submission (deadline 12.02.2024) are accessible here:

We are excited about the prospect of having you join us at the conference and share your insights. If you have any questions or require further information, please do not hesitate to contact us: Stefano Crabu: -  Roberta Spada:

Best regards, Stefano Crabu & Roberta Spada
