The theme of 2014 ESOCITE/4S joint conference is “Science in context(s): Souths and Norths”, which refers to the opportunity for STS scholars to meet colleagues (and research traditions) from other parts of the world, giving rise to new dialogues and exchanges.
Individual abstracts and proposals for sessions should emphasize how they will make original and timely contributions to any theme relevant to science and technology studies (STS). The Joint Meeting welcomes papers, session proposals, and events that are innovative in their delivery, organization, range of topics, and type of public, and which bring new resources to the STS community to explore these new relations and themes.
Apart from traditional research papers, the Joint Meeting conference also welcomes proposals for sessions and papers using ‘new media’ or other forms of new presentation. This year, we plan to hold special sessions in which presentations are in the form of a movie or video. Movie and video submissions should be related to STS. At this stage, a brief description of the movie and length will suffice.
