From the call:
Science and technology have changed dramatically over the past decades. In
this panel, we ask in how far this empirical change affects our understanding
of and reference to the "classics" in the social studies of science and
technology. Are they still a bedrock for the various strands of STS, the
anthropology, history, philosophy, political science, and sociology of science
and technology? Or have they lost traction with the current debates and
research interests? Generally: what is the status of classic studies in the
respective fields of research? In what ways is revision needed?
Contributions to the panel may address classic studies in the contexts of
research or teaching. We are especially interested in current empirical
research in science and technology that links with classic studies and offers
insights into the continuities and tensions between the two. We want to
explore what counts as a classic study and how they are being used. Which
studies have aged well and which ones have not?
