CFP: Collaboration as Social Practice - Science Studies Symposium 2022, June 9-10

                **CALL FOR PAPERS***

Collaboration as Social Practice
Collaborative Research Environments and Engagements Across
Disciplinary and Institutional Divides

Science Studies Symposium 2022, Helsinki, Finland, June 9-10 2022,
organized by the Finnish Society for Science and Technology Studies (FSSTS)

See the symposium website:

The necessity of interdisciplinary research collaboration and
partnering across professional and institutional divides is mainstream
discourse in today’s academic culture. Funders are keen to support
collaboration for innovative results and effective scientific and
technological solutions that match the complexity of societal
problems. Below this general desire for interdisciplinarity, the
aspects, benefits, and problems of actuating collaboration across
disciplinary and institutional divides are a matter of situated
practices, conventions, and tacit understandings of how collaboration
can be made to work – if it can be made to work.

Are these engagements and collaborations delivering what they promise?
What are the promises? How do we collaborate? What triumphs,
difficulties and challenges are typical to these arrangements in
