Science & Technology Studies (STS) Study Group

The Group’s purpose is to engage in research, dissemination and professional activities that explore the relationship between science, technology and the social. We aim to support interdisciplinary discussion, with a focus on areas at the intersections of sociology and STS. We are especially interested in conversations around how these two often overlapping fields can benefit each other and contribute to scholarship and public engagement in key areas of STS inquiry, including but not limited to analyses of scientific practice, technological developments, the production of knowledge and expertise as well as theoretical and methodological advances in the field.

The Group also aims to have collaborative links with other established UK and international networks in the field of science and technology studies, including the UK Association for Studies in Innovation, Science and Technology (AsSIST-UK) and the European Association for the Study of Science and Technology (EASST).
