We are pleased to announce the first joint meeting of the Red EsCTS and the Portuguese STS network. The meeting will take place in Lisbon, Instituto de Ciências Sociais da Universidade de Lisboa (Av. Prof. Aníbal de Bettencourt, 9, 1600-189 Lisboa www.ics.ulisboa.pt) from the 7th to 9th of June with the following title: Lost in Translation? People, Technologies for Practices and Concepts Across Boundaries. We welcome proposals for papers, communications, audiovisual presentations and alternative formats.
Portugal and Spain share many things but they are also divided by several boundaries – political, linguistic, historical, technological. Part of a same peninsula, they are nonetheless entities on their own right: two countries, two political systems, several languages, and, furthermore, two academic systems, two STS communities. In a way, they represent two sides of a border. And yet, as Science and Technology Studies (STS) have taught us, borders and boundaries are far from being self-evident.
This meeting aims to be an opportunity for STS scholars in Spain, Portugal and elsewhere to meet and share their social, academic, epistemological and political experiences generated by the difficulties and opportunities arising from crossing territorial, linguistic, disciplinary, and professional boundaries.
