This year’s European Association for the Study of Science and Technology conference will include a track on Engineering Practice co-chaired by Sarah Bell (UCL) and Darryl Farber (Penn State). The conference is to be held 2-4 September 2010 in Trento, Italy.

The aim of the track is to bring together researchers working on the social, political and philosophical dimensions of engineering. We welcome papers on topics such as:

  • ethnography of engineering practice
  • the relationship between engineering and policy
  • social studies of engineering knowledge
  • reflections from practicing engineers and engineering researchers
  • public engagement with engineering
  • incorporating contextual considerations into engineering education
  • gender and diversity in engineering
  • theoretical contributions from science and technology studies to the understanding of engineering knowledge and practice.

Abstracts of no more than 500 words should be submitted by 15 March, following the instructions on the conference website: http://events.unitn.it/en/easst010. Further details about track can be found here.

The track is sponsored by the Committee for Philosophy, Engineering, and Technology: http://philengtech.org/.
