6S Forum

6S has launched a new message board / forum which we hope will help to expand the 6S community. The idea is to leave the STSGRAD list open to topics which concern the greater STS graduate community and use the forum to specifically discuss topics of relevance to 6S members, including upcoming events as well as ride-sharing and room-sharing for the annual 4S conference.

You can find the forum at All student 4S members as of 3/1/13 are "members" of the forum. To gain access, go to the forum and click on the “forgot password” link, and a new password will be sent to you. Note, these credentials are specific to the forum. New students who want to join the forum will have to request access from the .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).

STS Grad Listserv Information

The listserv, STSGRAD, is intended to faciliate the formation of an international network of junior scholars (eg., graduate students, postdocs, junior scholars) who are interested in the field of Science and Technology Studies. This listserv will have three purposes: 1) to circulate information about upcoming conferences, opportunities to present or publish papers, and job postings; 2) help establish linkages among scholars with similar theoretical and empirical interests; and 3) provide a forum to generate broad discussion about issues important to young scholars across the world engaged with the field of Science and Technology Studies.

There are a couple of things to keep in mind with regard to the listserv. First, if you have any friends or colleagues who might be interested in subscribing, please forward them this message and information about subscribing to the list. This network is not intended to be restrictive to any particular organization, institution, or theoretical perspective. The more the merrier! Second, this listserv is intended to be a collective effort. If you see any interesting job or conference postings, opportunities for publication or presention, or are seeking expertise in a particular area, please take advantage of this great resource.

The STS Grad Listserv is managed through Google groups.  To subscribe, go here:
