The 2017 Science in Public conference, which examines the relationships between publics, science and technology, and the media, has just launched its call for papers. The whole list of panels looks really exciting, and are topics that range from the social status of robots to public participation in environmental science. The full list is here: http://sipsheff17.group.shef.ac.uk/index.php?option=24
I’m involved in two panels, which are currently calling for submissions:
Animals in Public: Care, Charisma and Knowledge (no. 27 on the above list), with Angela Cassidy
Why Has Truth Run out of Steam? – STS After Trump (no. 21), with Des Fitzgerald, Greg Hollin & Andy Balmer.
Our colleague Meritxell in Sociology is also promoting a fantastic sounding panel: (Non)Human Dimensions of STS Research (no. 24)
We’re looking forward to getting some interesting submissions!
