STS Summer School

Prior the STS symposium, on June 13th, there will be a Summer School for doctoral researchers. We are inviting contributions that address questions around science and technology studies. Papers will be commented by Reader Jane Calvert (University of Edinburgh), Professor Petri Ylikoski (University of Helsinki) and Associate Professor Mianna Meskus (University of Tampere).

For applying to the Summer School, please submit an abstract of your Ph.D. project (max 300 words) and a motivation letter (max 300 words) here by 16th of March 2018. The applicants will be informed about their acceptance by March 28th. For the Summer School, the participants are expected to write a paper (max 10 pages) and they can prepare 1-2 questions for the commentators to address (deadline May 25th). Summer School applicants are encouraged to submit a proposal to the STS symposium as well. There will be an informal dinner and get-together after the Summer School at own cost.
