The Society for the Study of New and Emerging Technologies (S.NET) is an international association that promotes intellectual exchange and critical inquiry about the advancement of new and emerging technologies in society. S.NET represents diverse communities, disciplines, viewpoints, and methodologies in the social sciences and humanities. It welcomes contributions from scientists and engineers that advance the critical reflection of nanoscience and other emerging technologies.
S.NET 2017: Flux
This year’s meeting will provide a forum for scholarly engagement and reflection on the meaning of coupled socio-technical change as a contemporary political phenomenon, a recurrent historical theme, and an object of future anticipation.
Even the most seemingly stable entities fluctuate over time: facts and artifacts, cultures and constitutions, people and planets. As new and old act and interact within broader systems of time, space, and meaning, scholars, practitioners, and citizens not only observe but participate in the co-production of scientific discovery and technological innovation with social, political, and economic reconfiguration.
In embracing flux as its theme, the 2017 S.NET conference encourages participants to confront head on the place of science and technology in changing societies:
Topics of interest include the following:
We invite individual paper submissions, open panel and closed session proposals, student posters, and special format sessions, including innovative audio-visual formats and art installations, storytelling fora, pop-up maker labs, and other interactive formats.
The deadline for abstract submissions is March 24, 2017. Abstracts should be approximately 250 words in length, and emailed in PDF format to firstname.lastname@example.org. Notifications of acceptance can be expected by April 30, 2017.
Junior scholars and those with limited resources are strongly encouraged to apply, as the organizing committee is actively investigating potential sources of financial support.
