The STS Making and Doing Program invites 4S members to share expression of their on-the-ground practices and innovations in scholarly knowledge work in a range of formats extending beyond academic papers or books. Due to the success of previous events, this is the third time an STS Making and Doing session will form part of the conference program – see 2015 and 2017 exhibits.

As an addition to those previous exhibits, we are planning to organize crits where a discussant comments on a set of related projects to tease out interesting connections or local differences between submissions. If you have suggestions for themes or specific discussants, please contact us (see below).

Reflections sparked by past STS Making and Doing sessions can be viewed in the recent issue of Engaging Science and Technology focused on “Making and Doing Politics through Grassroots Scientific Research on the Energy and Petrochemical Industries.” And in the chapter in the recent STS Handbook, “Making and Doing: Engagement and Reflexive Learning in STS”.

Awards for the STS Making and Doing session will be judged during the conference, and formally acknowledge and celebrate distinctive achievements in practices of STS making and doing.

If you have any questions about the STS Making & Doing Program, please contact Michaela Spencer (Chair M&D Organizing Committee) or Teun Zuiderent-Jerak (Chair M&D Awards Committee)
