    The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and fifteen other Federal Departments and Agencies have announced revisions to modernize, strengthen, and make more effective the Federal Policy for the Protection of Human Subjects that was originally promulgated as a Common Rule in 1991.

    PostedTuesday, January 17, 2017 AT 1:51 PM

    Call for Papers, Panels, and Making and Doing Presentations

    The Society for Social Studies of Science (4S) invites submissions for individual papers, traditional panels, and “Making and Doing” presentations at its Annual Meeting in Boston, August 30 – September 2, 2017.

    Conference theme:  STS (In)Sensibilities

    If sensibility is the ability to grasp and to respond, how might we articulate the (in)sensibilities of contemporary technoscience?  How, similarly, can we reflect on the extent and limits of our own sensibilities as STS scholars, teachers, and activists?  The conference theme invites an open reading and exploration of how the world is made differently sense-able through multiple discourses and practices of knowledge-making, as well as that which evades the sensoria of technoscience and STS.  Our aim is that the sense of ‘sense’ be read broadly, from mediating technologies of perception and apprehension to the discursive and ...
