Call for Papers
New Voices in Science & Technology Studies: A C3 Symposium
Williams College, Nov. 1-3, 2019
The Science & Technology Studies Program at Williams College invites papers on any topic concerned with science and technology and their relationship to society for a day-long symposium showcasing the work of early-career scholars (ABD or recent PhD) from historically underrepresented groups. Individuals from underrepresented groups in the professoriate are specifically defined here as African Americans, Alaska Natives, Arab Americans, Asian Americans, Latinx, Native Americans, Native Hawaiians, and other Pacific Islanders.
In keeping with the broad approach to Science & Technology Studies (STS) at Williams, we welcome papers from any disciplinary location — including but not limited to programs in STS or History of Science — so long as they offer new and significant insights into the imbrication of science and technology with society.
Invited speakers will receive a $500 honorarium and will be guests of Williams College from the evening of Nov. 1 through breakfast on Nov. 3, with all paper presentations to occur on Nov. 2. Participants will be organized into panels of 2-3 paper presentations of 20 minutes each followed by comments from a Williams faculty discussant and audience Q&A. We aim to create an inclusive, intellectually enriching experience for all involved, including the visiting speakers and the faculty and students of Williams.
