The Society for Social Studies of Science Student Section (6S) exists to facilitate interactions among students and early career scholars in science and technology studies and to promote their interests within 4S. 6S serves three core aims: to facilitate networking and professional development amongst students and early career scholars; to represent interests of students and early career scholars to the 4S Council and within 4S as an organization; and to contribute to the continued vitality and development of 4S through the coordinated activity of its student and early career members.
Towards these aims, the Social Studies of Science Student Section (6S) has hosted workshops and events during the annual meetings of the Society for Social Studies of Science (4S) designed to facilitate community among students and junior scholars of science studies, and further opportunities for collaboration.
The first virtual 6S pre-conference workshop was held on Monday, August 17, 2020. Find proceedings here. In 2021, the second 6S virtual preconference workshop was held (proceedings here).
STS Infrastructures is an instance of the Platform for Experimental Collaborative Ethnography (PECE), a digital archive, workspace, and publishing platform also designed and built by STS scholars. Sign up for the PECE newsletter here.
