The 2017 symposium for science and technology studies titled "Experimentation and Evidence" calls for papers examining the ontological, epistemological and practical issues in the process of creating, validating, and revisioning knowledge.

Science studies have rendered science as a social and cultural practice. Classic STS studies have described upstream “truth factories” such as laboratories and the processes of producing knowledge, while others have taken a downstream perspective, to examine the social and political effects of such knowledge. However, increasingly making and arguing for a political, administrative, or corporate decision requires more often than not drawing on items of knowledge (conventionally called ‘facts’) for support (legitimacy, justification), regardless of whether the decision concerns a public issue or is made in a laboratory, court of law, financial or medical institution, or in some other closed social domain.

What makes all this very interesting is that in many of these occasions that require choosing, the ‘facts’ are based on experimental methodology or research design. Actually, experimental methodology may well be in contradiction with the common idea that decision making should be based on reliable facts. As the experiments in our focus now tend to be on the cutting edge of knowledge, resulting ‘facts’ may be less secure than expected.

How, then, does one arrive at a credible ‘fact’ in any of these contexts? What constitutes, through which kind of hierarchies of authority and lobbying, evidence in different contexts, and how do ‘facts’ translate when traveling across epistemic boundaries between different social domains? How and why is the relevance of experimentation and experimental research design in different social domains argued for? How have the relations between experimentation and evidence changed historically, and how does the current cultural, intellectual and moral climate (Zeitgeist) influence their interrelation? How do social movements’ knowledge claims relate to mobilizing citizens’ experiences to governmental purposes?

Call for papers: Summer School of Science and Technology Studies, 8.–9.6.2017, Helsinki

Organised by The Finnish Society for Science and Technology, The Finnish Association for Medical Law and Ethics. Funded by The Federation of Finnish Learned Societies in connection to the symposium "Experimentation and Evidence."

Commentators:

Barbara Prainsack, King's College London

“Barbara Prainsack is a political scientist with expertise in the regulatory, social, and ethical dimensions of bioscience, biomedicine, and forensics. In the medical realm, her current work focuses on the emergence of personalised medicine and the ‘participatory turn’ in generating, analysing, and interpreting data.”

Michael Guggenheim, Goldsmiths, University of London

“Michael Guggenheim’s work thus far has been defined by different yet connected themes relating to the relationship between experts and lay people, the role of objects for this relationship and on methodical and theoretical innovation derived from the combination of science studies with sociological theory.”

Scope and practicalities

We are inviting contributions to this Summer School from students in science and technology studies and related fields, who address questions around experimentation, evidence and different forms of knowledge making, or any other topic relevant to science and technology studies or medical ethics.

For applying to the summer school, please send an abstract of your paper (max 300 words) by 23.4.2017 to karoliina.snell(at)helsinki.fi. If you have preferences which one of the commentators you would like to comment on your work, please indicate this in the abstract. The students will be informed by 29.4. about their acceptance. For the Summer School, the students are expected to write a paper (max 5 pages) and they can prepare 1-2 questions for the commentators to address. The deadline for the paper is 20.5. These should also be sent to karoliina.snell(at)helsinki.fi.

The Summer School is arranged in connection to the 2017 symposium for science and technology studies titled "Experimentation and Evidence".

 

Call for Papers: “Expertise and its tensions” A Special issue of Science & Technology Studies.

Contemporary societies are permeated by, and depend on, many kinds of expertise. Furthermore, expertise is commonly contested in various domains, such as environment, health, medicine and economics. Debates on expertise may involve struggles over ontologies or epistemic authority. These struggles can be about relations between lay and expert knowledges, but they might also emerge among scientific experts, or between distinct forms of expertise and ways of knowing. Furthermore, inter- or multidisciplinary endeavors create tensions as scientific experts from various fields need to fit together their approaches and unspoken or tacit aspects of their expertise.

Articles can relate to any aspect of expertise, targeting, for example, any of the three pre-established topic groups: 1) expansion of expertise in the public domain, 2) multidisciplinary expertise and its tensions, 3) experts, politics and policy.

Proposals are welcome on (but not restricted to) the following topics:

 

Emergence of multiple expertises around specific phenomena

Multidisciplinary expertise and tacit knowledge

Expertise and wicked problems

Expertise, law and regulation

Socio-material aspects of expertise

The place of expertise in social services

Trust in science and/or think tanks

Science-policy dynamics

Expertise and the Triple helix

Expansion of expertise in the public domain

Social media and expertise

Personal values, stances, and expert knowledge

Expertise concerning risk

Experience-based expertise

Politically and economically motivated dissent in science

Public questioning of medical expertise

NGOs as policy experts

Participatory expertise

Contingency of the boundaries of public expertise

How information systems and databases affect medical expertise

Big data and expertise

Tensions in multi-disciplinary expertise

The interfaces of expertise

Semantic difference and loss of context in multidisciplinary scientific work

Emotional tensions in multi-, inter-, and trans-disciplinary interaction

Multiple ontologies and professional languages

Scientific misconduct and its relation to expertise

Total quality management of expertise

The efficiency of expertise

 

The guest-editors of this special issue of Science and Technology Studies are: Steven Yearley, Maria Åkerman, Otto Auranen, Harley Bergroth, Ismo Kantola, Sampsa Saikkonen, Jaakko Taipale.

Papers to be submitted should not be published or under review elsewhere. All submissions will be peer-reviewed according to Science & Technology Studies’ guidelines and procedures. For further manuscript guidelines, please see ‘manuscript submissions’ on the Science & Technology Studies website (www.sciencetechnologystudies.org).
