The Conference is organized by the Italian Society of Science and Technology Studies, an organisation born in 2005 to build an Italian network of researchers interested in the social dynamics that interconnect science and technology themselves.

This year’s theme is “Dis/Entangling Technoscience. Vulnerability, Responsibility and Justice”:

The major theme refers to the complex and ambivalent role of technoscience and innovation in constituting societies – making possibilities flourish, but also creating new vulnerabilities. The conference will welcome empirical and theoretical contributions addressing diverse aspects of the social study of science, technology and innovation from different disciplines and fields, such as anthropology, economics, design, history, law, philosophy, political science, psychology, semiotics and sociology.


Registration to the Conference is open until June 14, 10.00 AM CET. Read the full programme or register to the events.
