CFP - 4S

News from 4S or The Society for Social Studies of Science
2006 Annual Meeting:
November 2-4, 2006, Vancouver, B.C, Canada

The 2006 4S conference will celebrate the 30th anniversary of the society. The meeting will be co-located with the History of Science Society and Philosophy of Science Association, which will be in a hotel a few blocks away. "Information Central" for the meeting this year is at

Call for Papers: Silence, Suffering and Survival

This year's theme is "Silence, Suffering and Survival", and it is designed to explore the overlooked spaces, boundaries, actors, networks, and artifacts of science and technology. We welcome papers and panels that address questions about the silences of silencing, unintended consequences, and persistence in science, technology and STS. The topic is meant to open up and stir discussion about theorizing in areas we may have overlooked such as the process of secrecy under which processes of silence are often conducted.

Possible topics might include the science and technology of slavery, disability, survival, warfare, peace, and quantification. Discussions might address de-moralization and re-moralization within science, technology and STS, the sort of silence/noise created by technology/ science, and how technology/science create and alleviate suffering and/or survival. This could include processes of survival that are often off the record, such as workarounds, "older ways of knowing", older (non-scientific) ways of knowing, and …?

Submission deadline is April 3. Submit now Online submission is now open for both abstracts and sessions.

New session formats

We will be exploring some new session formats this year, including new media presentations, "fire-side chats", and junior-senior sessions. Some sessions at the Vancouver 4S will be designated "working sessions." For these sessions, papers will be made available online in advance of the conference so that panel members and attendees will be able to read them before arriving; the conference session then will be an opportunity for more substantial discussion. If you would like to organize or contribute to a working session, please contact Josh Greenberg, Tarleton Gillespie, or Sergio Sismondo. If you have ideas for these or other session formats, please contact the Program Chair: Wenda Bauchspies.

Organize panels online

4S members are invited to use the Discussion Board in the Members Section of the web site to announce ideas for panels and invite participation. Log in. Authors' help needed for 4S book exhibit As we are planning the 4S meeting exhibits for Vancouver in 2006, it is also helpful for authors to send us notification of their recent publications, and to remind their editors or marketing contacts at their publishers that they will be attending a conference and would appreciate display copies or other promotional materials, or publisher exhibits, at these meetings. More information will be available as we coordinate the exhibit plans with HSS/PSA for the annual meetings. Please contact Jennifer L. Croissant or the Program
Chair Wenda Bauchspies for more information.
