Call for Applications to Participate in Virtual 6S Workshop (2021)

Apply by: July 30, 2021 VIA This form

Since its inception, the Social Studies of Science Student Section (6S) has hosted workshops and events during the annual meetings of the Society for Social Studies of Science (4S) designed to facilitate community among students and junior scholars of science studies, and further opportunities for collaboration.

This year, the 6S pre-conference workshop will take place virtually on Tuesday, October 5, 2021 (time will be determined based on time zones of participants). The workshop is free to 4S student members and we have space for 40-50 graduate students (PhD/Masters programs or equivalent).

Participants will complete one to two exercises, selected from five options, in advance of the virtual workshop meeting. In the weeks leading up to the virtual workshop meeting, participants will engage with each other’s exercises via the STS Infrastructures platform. During the virtual meeting, guest faculty speakers will moderate conversations around the exercises and beyond.

If you are interested, please fill out this application form.
