CALLFORTRACKS

The *8th STS Italia Conference* will be held in *Trieste, Italy, 18 to 
20 June 2020*, by the Italian Society of Science and Technology Studies, 
in collaboration with the Department of Political and Social Sciences of 
the University of Trieste.

We are now inviting proposals for tracks. The selected tracks will be 
subsequently included as part of the formal call for papers. The 
submitted tracks are meant to engage with the general theme of the 
conference: “*Dis/Entangling Technoscience: Vulnerability, 
Responsibility and Justice*”.

This major theme refers to the complex and ambivalent role of 
technoscience and innovation in constituting societies – making 
possibilities flourish, but also creating new vulnerabilities. The 
emergence of new, severe forms of labour exploitation through digital 
platforms and algorithms, the risk of massive and hidden surveillance 
practices and the related commodification of personal information, the 
emergence of novel forms of genetic discrimination in the context of 
genomic medicine and the public unease with and controversy over the 
public accountability of expert communities are just some of the most 
well known and vivid examples of the epistemic and biopolitical 
importance of re-considering technoscience in the context of justice and 
vulnerability.

Indeed, in societies intensely shaped by technoscience, vulnerability – 
the exposure to harm and the susceptibility to subsequent loss – can be 
understood as an emergent property of the relationships between human 
actors and material objects, technological artefacts and infrastructures 
and social processes and structures. However, the effects of these 
processes (the levels, intensities and types of vulnerabilities) are 
unevenly distributed and closely interconnected in space and time and 
across different social worlds. Such an unequal distribution points to 
the underlying, fundamental question of justice in a “technologically 
dense society”. More broadly, it refers to exploring the reasons for 
this vulnerability, addressing topics such as the forms and sources of 
power and participation, the limits of control and epistemic 
uncertainty, the expectations, representations and interests of the 
social actors and the (often assumed) neutrality of scientific knowledge 
and technology. It refers to examining how responsibilities for this 
state of affairs are defined and assigned, addressing topics such as 
models of governance and regulation, ethics and values, hegemony and 
contestation and discourse and legitimation. For these reasons, justice 
and responsibility in technologically dense societies not only represent 
an important research object for science and technology studies and 
other related fields, but their exploration is also a way to assert the 
civic commitment of the STS community itself.

The conference will welcome empirical and theoretical contributions 
addressing diverse aspects of the social study of science, technology 
and innovation from different disciplines and fields, such as 
anthropology, economics, design, history, law, philosophy, political 
science, psychology, semiotics and sociology.

*Track proposals should be submitted* via email to the organising 
committee, <[log in to unmask] 
<[log in to unmask]" target="_blank">http:[log in to unmask]>>, *by 31 
October 2019*. Along with traditional *academic sessions*, the 
submission of alternative formats is encouraged. These can include (but 
are not limited to) roundtables, *workshop-style sessions, theatrical 
debates*, and other *performances*. Applicants are encouraged to engage 
with the general theme of the conference.

We welcome proposals covering a wide variety of topics and domains, 
including (but not limited to) the following:

● Co-creation in science and technology
● Communication, media and digital technologies
● Critical perspectives on consumption practices
● Design practices in and outside of official/conventional research and 
development settings
● Coping with vulnerability in and through education
● Engaging art in technoscience
● Environmental sustainability, adaptation and resilience
● Expectations, promises and visions of science, technology and innovation
● Forms and practices of public participation and engagement
● The gender–technology relationship
● Grassroots innovations for sustainable development
● Hackerspaces, makerspaces and DIY centres
● Information infrastructures and infrastructuring practices
● Platforms, algorithms and the organisation of society
● Political economy of science, technology and innovation
● Medical practices and the public shaping of biomedical research
● Postcolonial technoscience: science and technology in non-Western 
countries
● Responsibility in science and innovation
● Science, technology and innovation policy
● Work, organisation and technology

Submissions for thematic tracks should be written in Italian or English 
using the template available in attachment**and at the following link: < 
bit.ly/2krHKE0 <https://bit.ly/2krHKE0> >. They should include a short 
description of the proposed theme (max. 400 words) and information about 
the convenors (max. 50 words for each convenor, including email 
addresses). Convenors will be notified of track acceptance by 18 
November 2019.

Convenors will independently set session topics and organise each track 
according to the numerical constraints specified by the conference 
organisers. Convenors who consider an abstract interesting but not 
suited to their thematic track will be free to redirect the abstract to 
the scientific board for submission to another track. If a track draws 
fewer than three abstracts, the scientific board will decide whether to 
run the track or merge it with another track.

*IMPORTANT* *DATES*

  * October 31, 2019: Deadline for track submission
  * November 18, 2019: Notification of track acceptance or rejection
