Call for participation: Workshop on “How to organize STS in Germany” (20.-21.2.2019, Kassel)

At the 2018 EASST conference in Lancaster, more than a hundred scholars came together to collectively explore how the growing STS community in Germany could be best organised. Mindful of already existing initiatives and the diversity of interests and expectations, it became clear that the answer to this question needs to be developed gradually, with the involvement of STS scholars working in or with Germany at all academic levels. Based on the Lancaster experience and the conversations that have developed since the EASST conference, we would like to take the organisation process to the next level by convening a two-day workshop in Kassel, to be held on the 20th and 21st of February 2019.

For more information see the full call for participation and our homepage (, where you can sign up for the workshop until the 15th January 2019. In order to integrate as many ideas and suggestions as possible, we also ask you to share your thoughts with the organisation team via the registration form on our website, via our discussion forum ( or Twitter (@German_STS_ORG, #STSinGermany). Feel free to share this call via your network.

We are looking forward to your input and lively discussions,

The organizing team (Tanja Bogusz, Stefanie Büchner, Endre Dányi, Anja Klein, Stefan Laser, Martina Schlündner & Estrid Sørensen)
