SOCIETY FOR SOCIAL STUDIES OF SCIENCE
ANNUAL CONFERENCE
Innovations, Interruptions, Regenerations

The theme of the 2019 annual meeting of the Society for Social Studies of Science – Innovations, Interruptions, Regenerations – calls for presentations, panels and other events that are innovative in form and content, conveying and examining insights from science and technology studies (STS) into innovation itself, innovations in STS and ways STS can be both a source and site of regenerations of many kinds. Extending the transnational character and commitments of 4S, the meeting will highlight STS innovations in different locations – in education, research, practice, and academic organizing. The meeting will include a Making & Doing exhibit, and a special exhibit – Innovating STS – that will showcase how diverse STS departments, networks, organizations and streams of scholarship (actor-network theory, feminist and postcolonial STS, and so on) have taken shape, continually interrupting and regenerating the field as a whole.

CFP: GENDER, BODIES & TECHNOLOGY 5th TRANSDISCIPLINARY CONFERENCE: “TechnoLogics: Power and Resistance”

Roanoke, Virginia. April 25-27, 2019

Proposal Deadline: November 1, 2018

Gender, Bodies, & Technology (GBT) is an initiative within Women’s and Gender Studies at Virginia Tech that aims to explore the multiple, proliferating, and gendered dimensions of technologized bodies and embodied technologies. Through our initiative and interdisciplinary conference, we foreground research, theories, and performances that highlight the discursive and material nodes around which gender, bodies, and technologies both cohere and fracture. We invite scholars, activists, and artists from the humanities, social and natural sciences, visual and performing arts, life sciences, disability studies, STEM fields, and queer and feminist science studies to submit papers, panels, workshops, new media, art, film, and performance pieces that explore the intersections of gender, bodies & technology in contexts ranging from political protests and citizen science labs to electoral hacking and the #MeToo movement. How, we ask, might topics such as gene editing technologies, facial recognition software, Big Data, environmental crises, or Black superheroes produce new lines of inquiry when filtered through a GBT perspective?

LASA 2019

Boston. May 24–27, 2019

La fecha límite para el envío de propuestas es el 6 de septiembre de 2018, a las 5 p. m., hora del este.

El ensayo “Nuestra América” de José Martí se publicó en 1891 en Nueva York y Ciudad de México, en respuesta a la primera conferencia panamericana de 1890, en la cual se propuso al panamericanismo como una forma de conectar a América del Norte y del Sur. Invocamos y expandimos el mensaje de “Nuestra América” para promover una visión hemisférica de justicia e inclusión, en una era en la que la política mundial se desarrolla, con frecuencia, a partir de muros y fronteras aseguradas, en lugar del fomento de la justicia social y la democracia. Nuestro congreso se lleva a cabo en Boston, Massachusetts, el lugar de eventos clave en la revolución que resultó en la independencia estadounidense y —junto con otros episodios trascendentales de la “era de las revoluciones”, incluso la revolución haitiana que abolió la esclavitud— sentó las bases de las ideas contemporáneas sobre la democracia y la justicia.
