Towards scholarly encounters amongst STS scholars in Germany offers a meeting of scholars across STS networks and associations @ Aachen, 15-17 March 2023

Science & Technology Studies (STS) has become a recognised, delineated academic field in the international research landscape. In Germany, however, STS is rather dispersed among existing academic disciplines, research institutes, and loosely connected academic networks and associations. To strengthen the interconnectedness of STS in Germany, we organise, a conference series that brings together German organisations, labs, and research groups that are more or less closely related to STS. You find an overview of already participating groups, organisations, and networks below.

The initial conference is scheduled for March, 15-17, 2023, at the Human Technology Center in Aachen, themed “Circulations”. The event is organised by Stefan Böschen, Paula Helm, Stefan Laser, Ingmar Lippert, Jan-Hendrik Passoth, Jan-Felix Schrape, Cornelius Schubert, Mareike Smolka, Jan-Peter Voss, and Lisa Wiedemann (alphabetical order).

For more information, contact Ingmar Lippert.
