The Science and Democracy Network (SDN) was established in 2002 to enhance the quality and significance of scholarship in science and technology studies (STS) by training young professionals and by forging links between STS and related fields of study and practice.
The SDN sponsors an annual meeting whose primary goal is to strengthen and deepen STS scholarship on science and democracy, and to provide training opportunities for young STS scholars to enable them to participate more effectively in decision processes and public affairs.
Information about past meetings, back to the first meeting in 2002, is available here.
Call for Abstracts The Workshop Planning Committee invites abstracts (up to 300 words) on a theme appropriate for discussion at the workshop. The closing date for abstract submissions is March 15, 2014. We will make decisions on which abstracts to accept by about a month from that date. The workshop will be organized as in previous years around the following themes:
Under each theme, priority will be given to work that effectively integrates issues of political and epistemic authority. We plan to accept somewhere between 16-20 abstracts in all. Preference will be given to abstracts from people who did not present last year (though this is not an absolute rule).
You should address your abstracts to Uli Felt (email@example.com) and also copy your submissions to Shana_Rabinowich@hks.harvard.edu. If you have any organizational or practical questions regarding travel or accommodation, please address them to firstname.lastname@example.org. One of the members of the local organizing team will get back to you as soon as possible.
If your abstract is accepted by the Workshop Planning Committee, you will be expected to provide a final paper for circulation to other workshop participants no later thanJune 10, 2014. Please keep this date in mind as you respond to the call for abstracts.
