Society for Social Studies of Science (4S) Sydney 2018 

August 29-Sep 1st 

Sydney International Convention Centre

Call for Submissions

Closes February 1st 2018

We are excited to announce that 4sSydney is now open for submissions.

You can submit closed panels and single papers, a paper to an open panel, a Making and Doing session; or submit to an exciting new addition to the 4S program, the STS Across Borders Exhibit.

Our theme – TRANSnational STS – encourages presentations, panels, and other events that deepen and extend the transnational character of the Society itself, while engaging issues invoked by both the TRANS prefix (across, beyond, to change thoroughly), and by the problematic and evolving status of ‘nations’ in processes of global ordering.

Over one hundred open panels have been accepted from scholars on every continent and covering every major STS theme. Please consider contributing to what is certain to be a rich and diverse regional conference – by submitting, by adding to our collection of translations of the conference (currently 18 languages) or by contributing to the blog highlighting our two plenary themes, Indigenous STS and Querying STS Geneaologies.

Please share this call to your networks far and wide, email us with any questions, and follow us on twitter or join our mailing list for updates.
