Call for papers: “Expertise and its tensions” A Special issue of Science & Technology Studies.

Contemporary societies are permeated by, and depend on, various types
of expertise. Expertise is also commonly contested in various domains,
such as environment, health, medicine and economics. Debates on
expertise commonly involve struggles over propositional power as well
as epistemic authority. These struggles might be about relations
between lay and expert knowledges, but they might also emerge betwixt
scientific experts, or among other forms of expertise and ways of
knowing. Furthermore, inter- or multidisciplinary endeavors create
tensions as scientific experts from various fields need to fit
together their approaches.

Articles can relate to any aspect of expertise, targeting, for
example, to any of the three pre-established topics groups: 1)
expansion of expertise in the public domain, 2) multidisciplinary
expertise and its tensions, 3) experts, politics and policy.

We welcome but do not restrict the scope of articles, on following topics:

Emergence of multiple expertise around distinct phenomena
Multidisciplinary expertise and tacit knowledge
Expertise and wicked problems
Expertise, law and regulation
Socio-materiality of expertise
The place of expertise in social services
Trust in science and/or think tanks
Science-policy dynamics
Triple helix
Expansion of expertise in the public domain
Social media  and expertise
Personal values, stances, and expert knowledge
Expertise of risk
Experience based expertise
Politically and economically motivated dissent in science
Public questioning of medical expertise
NGO’s as policy experts
Participatory expertise
Contingency of the boundaries of public expertise
How information systems and databases affect medical expertise
Big data and expertise
Tensions in the multi-disciplinary expertise
The interfaces of expertise
Semantic difference and loss of context in multidisciplinary scientific work
Emotional tensions in multi-, inter-, and trans-disciplinary interaction
Multiple ontologies and professional languages
Scientific misconduct
Total quality management of expertise
The efficiency of expertise

The guest-editors of this special issue of Science and Technology
Studies are: Steven Yearley, Maria Åkerman, Otto Auranen, Harley
Bergroth, Ismo Kantola, Sampsa Saikkonen, Jaakko Taipale.

7ª Escola de Inverno em Avaliação de Tecnologia

winterschool-ta

O Programa Doutoral em Avaliação de Tecnologia e a Secção Temática Conhecimento, Ciência e Tecnologia da APS anunciam a abertura de propostas para a 7ª Escola de Inverno, que terá lugar no dia 5 de dezembro na Biblioteca da FCT-UNL. As propostas de comunicação (título, resumo, autores, instituição) deverão ser enviadas para pdat.coordenador@fct.unl.pt até ao dia 31 de Outubro.

As Escolas de Inverno em Avaliação de Tecnologia fazem parte do processo de avaliação do Programa Doutoral em Avaliação de Tecnologia e começaram a funcionar em Dezembro de 2010.

Os alunos de doutoramento, após um ano de actividade lectiva, devem apresentar o seu Plano de Tese. Com base nesse plano, os alunos fazem uma apresentação pública onde também estarão presentes os seus orientadores. Assim, durante um ou dois dias temos um debate intenso sobre o conteúdo desses projectos de investigação e que vai permitir que os alunos avancem para actividades mais avançadas da sua investigação.

Normalmente, os textos elaborados com base nessas apresentações e nos planos de tese revistos, são publicados na colecção IET Working Papers Series, que se encontra nosrepositórios da Universidade Nova de Lisboa e do IDEAS/RePEc.
