Call for Papers Helsinki, June 6-7 FSSTS 2024 Science Studies Symposium

How to make a scientific contribution From intellectual exercise to scientific agency What is it about? Scientific contributions, building on or breaking with existing knowledge and understanding, provide novel ways of perceiving and relating to our sociomaterial surroundings. However, what exactly does it mean to make a contribution to science? What is understood to be a contribution in general, and in science studies or SSH scholarly fields more specifically?

The purpose of the 2024 Science Studies Symposium is to help the participants develop some control over questions related to making contributions in their work. The Science Studies Symposium welcomes contributions in interrelated disciplines, including but not limited to STS, philosophy of science, sociology, and anthropology, preferably with a topical connection to the interaction of science, technology, and society.
