Call for panels: “Science, Expertise and other Modes of Knowledge: Trends, Patterns, and Prospects”


The 2023 conference (Basel, 31 August-1 September 2023) of the Swiss Association for the Study of Science, Technology and Society (STS-CH) is organized in collaboration with the ZASB and the Department of Social Sciences of the University of Basel. It brings together Swiss and international scholars from all career levels around current issues in science, policy, and society.

The 2023 conference of the Swiss Association for the Studies of Science, Technology & Society (STS-CH) invites empirical, methodological and theoretical contributions from the field of STS. The event aims to promote the community of STS scholars by fostering exchange between various disciplines and fields of research that address issues relating to science, technology, policy, and society.

The meeting connects Swiss and international researchers and welcomes participants from all career levels. It also welcomes contributors with knowledge and expertise from adjacent communities of practice working on these issues outside of academia.

The conference theme Science, Expertise and other Modes of Knowledge: Trends, Patterns, and Prospects offers a point of entry to address current issues. Contributions are, however, not restricted to the conference theme. Panel proposals may address any research topic related to science, technology and society.

Deadline for panel submissions: 1. March 2023
