Format:
Combined Format Open Panel

Short Abstract:

This panel welcomes contributions that grapple with how collaboration occurs (or not) between different actors broadly conceived and in different spaces. Who is collaborating and with whom? What enables/stifles collaboration? How can concepts from STS help transform collaborative practices in 2024?

Long Abstract:

This combined format open panel welcomes contributions which grapple with how collaboration takes place (or not) between different actors broadly conceived and in different spaces. Who is collaborating with whom? What enables or stifles collaboration? How can concepts from STS help transform collaborative practices in 2024?

STS is not a stranger to thinking about entangled relationships, working together, co-creation and collaboration – from medical practitioners collaborating to treat patients, to citizen science collaborations, to collaborations between humans and nonhumans – animals, plants and technologies.

The panel is interested in contributions that engage with collaborations in relation to:

• Quick and slow collaborations – e.g. collaborations fostered quickly to manage say emerging crises and emergencies vs long and enduring slow collaborations needed to respond to changes in the climate over long periods of time

• Unexpected collaborations – e.g. case studies collaborations between unexpected parties or unexpected topics or in unexpected places

• Anti-collaborations – e.g. what does it take to not collaborate? Might non-collaboration transform status quo faster than collaboration?

• Concepts for collaboration – what concepts and ideas does STS use which could help think about transforming how collaboration takes place and collaborations that transform.

Contributions are invited in the form of traditional papers, dialogue sessions, workshops and experiments etc.
