iCS/SATSU Call For Papers
This three-day symposium is intended to explore the intersection between these two areas of inquiry, with a specific focus on how Web 2.0 is both generative and challenging of different forms of knowledge production and the authority it commands. Questions related to co-production, citizen science, the power of data algorithms and metrics to shape or bypass human agency, and the possibility of participatory forms of surveillance are just some of the issues that are raised. This conference is intended to bring together leading scholars in the fields of STS, communication and social media analysis, and the history and philosophy of science to critically explore these issues. Papers are invited that explore these broad questions around a number of possible themes, including:
- The boundaries and future of social media as a medium of knowledge creation, dissemination, and regulation
- The co-production of knowledge via Web 2.0 platforms
- Knowledge, expertise and disruptive/disrupted authority
- Capturing social media: the commercial/political exploitation by or empowering of Web 2.0
- Ownership, dissemination and use of scientific knowledge
- E-governance and the regulation of knowledge within social media
- National practices and global opportunities
- Novel forms of knowledge creation through group processes, archiving, digitization etc.
- Public and visible science
- Scientific controversies online
The deadline for this call for papers is 29 February, 2012. If you are interested to submit an individual paper or panel including 3 papers please go to web-link or contact email email@example.com The best papers will make up a Special Issue of iCS and selected papers will also be published as an edited collection by Routledge.
