Strengthening “Transnational STS” is a primary goal of the incoming editorial collective of 4S’s Open Access journal, Engaging Science, Technology, and Society (ESTS). We aim to do this by purposefully diversifying the range of authors, reviewers, and audiences that currently engage with the journal, by cultivating an understanding of and developing supporting socio-technical infrastructures and protocols, and by encouraging reflexive theorization of “Transnational STS” and an understanding of what is at stake intellectually and politically. In this presentation, I will briefly outline our collective’s vision, strategies, and immediate priorities for ESTS during our editorial tenure, hoping to learn from the audience how we can work together toward deepening the transnationalization of the field.
