Reflections / Fredy Mora-Gámez"Revisiting rights restitution and the narratives of peace from STS may also consist of interrogating the technical objects and expert discourses that make possible the promotion of those narratives" / "Una relectura desde los ESCT de la restitución de derechos y las narrativas de paz consiste también en problematizar aquellos objetos técnicos y discursos expertos que precisamente hacen posible promover dichas narrativas"
Projects / Gabriela Bortz and Hernan ThomasWhat is the role of Science and Technology studies and STS scholars in promoting, advocating, and building pathways towards inclusive and sustainable development?
Projects / Christopher Peter WoodHow do we move away from the desk (and the projector) to convey more of the subtle interactions which take place between bodies, technologies and their physical situations?
Projects / Alex Rushforth, Laurens Hessels, Ruth Müller, Sarah de Rijcke, Thomas Franssen, Tjitske Holtrop & Wolfgang KaltenbrunnerDespite growing interest, as an object of study ‘excellence’ discourses, policies, and instruments remain somewhat difficult to pin down. This is at least partly due to the term itself being something of an ambiguous container concept.
Projects / Ellen K Foster and Karin PatzkeAction, Interaction and Change (or what our 4S title session really means).
Projects / Kristin Asdal, C-F Helgesson, Freyja Knapp, Francis Lee, and Steve WoolgarHow is ‘what counts as valuable’ established in valuation practices, and by what criteria? What and who participate in such ventures and what are the effects?

Projects / Sarah Kember and Alex TaylorCritically examining these relations between time, the count, and forms of life/labour, our research might also be seen to point to more careful and caring imaginaries of who and what could count in/through computation.
Projects / Johan Söderberg, Maxigas, Adrian SmithIn this track, we propose a mid-term assessment of STS theory, on basis of case studies of hackers and makers. The question we pose to ourselves is: Are we fighting a foregone war like old generals do when we seek the liberation of our tools, just as if it was our own liberty that we fought for?
Projects / Katherine Weatherford Darling, Natali Valdez, Emily Vasquez, Christoph Hanssmann, and Melissa CrearyAre projects that focus explicitly on the gendered and raced forms of subjectivity and lived experience within technoscientific domains seen as "STS enough"?
Projects / Don IhdeBarcelona marks the ninth year for postphenomenology research panels at 4S. Don Ihde highlights the research that will be presented in Barcelona this year.
Reviews / Yelena GluzmanThe cards were there to be peered at and handled, and mounted lights and magnifying glasses allowed for an intimate examination of the texture and detail in each. The mise-en-scène of the cards figured them as specimens, and us as naturalists.
