CFP: Generation

Deadline: July 6, 2022

As STS practitioners, we grapple with the understanding that generating knowledge and ideas are always practices in becoming, unfinished, and multiple, never isolated. We are asked to think about the socio-technical, material-discursive, and political relations that generate some worlds and ideas, and exclude others. These multiple configurations speak of the inevitability of interdependence, relationality, permeability, and boundaries.

To think about generation in multiple senses means to think through the humble awareness of our indebtedness to other bodies, knowledges, histories, ecologies—as a part of a community in constant formation. This awareness can reflect in the ethics of our own praxis. It can inspire us to bring into conversation different generations and sensitivities of STS. It can also speak of the knowledges and material practices that shape memories of past generations, and expectations and promises about future ones. It can mean asking what relations get remembered, what relations are maintained, and who is harmed or excluded in the process.
