From May 3rd-5th 2021 the 19th Annual STS Conference 2021 – Critical Issues in Science, Technology and Society Studies will be held at the Graz University of Technology as an online event. Within this virtual conference a session track will be organized on Digitalization as a Transformational Force for Transcultural Communication.
Panel organizers: Stefan Baumgarten & Michael Tieber (University of Graz)
We kindly invite scholars and practitioners from the fields of Translation and Interpreting Studies as well as researchers working with theories, methods and heuristics from Science, Technology and Society Studies to submit proposals for presentations as mentioned in the call for papers.
The session will be organised alongside three different but interconnected formats: We will begin with some classical presentations (20 minutes per presentation), followed by two brief ‘polemical’ positioning papers (10 minutes per paper), and the session will be concluded by a panel discussion.
We welcome abstracts either for 20-minute-presentations, or for 10-minute-positioning-papers. The concluding panel discussion among the participants will further encourage interdisciplinary debate on the session topic, leading to a possible joint publication.
Abstracts (max. 300 words) should include name and affiliation, presentation format, title and five keywords. Please send your abstract as a Word document by February 22nd 2021 to the following three email addresses simultaneously:
We look forward to your abstracts and to an inspirational session!
