Message posted on 22/09/2022 PANEL CfA: How useful are the classics for the social studies of science and technology today?

Dear colleagues,

Please find attached the call for abstracts for a joint panel of and at (15-17 March 2023).

Topic: How useful are the classics for the social studies of science and technology today?

Panel organizers: Tanja Bogusz, Jochen Glser, Cornelius Schubert, and Estrid Srensen

Deadline for abstracts is: 9 Nov. 2022 is a bi-annual conference for enabling encounters amongst STS scholars in Germany. In 2023, it will be held for the first time in Aachen. For more info, please visit

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?
