STS and Security Studies: Expertise, Infrastructures and Practices - II

Thu, September 5, 2:45 to 4:15pm, Sheraton New Orleans Hotel, Floor: Five, Grand Ballroom E


This panel focuses on the intersection between STS and Security Studies in different regions and at various scales. It includes three sessions on: 1) carcerality, 2) security technologies, and 3) military/defense practices. Our purpose is to build an intellectual community with shared concerns and with transnational and comparative interests. In the spirit of the 2019 4S conference, the panel interrogates how STS may be both a source and a site for innovation, interruptions, and regenerations within the field of security studies and by way of doing so attempts to bring security studies into greater prominence in STS. We are interested in ways science and technology is used in carceral, security, and defense interventions on the one hand, and how these infrastructures, logics and practices are generating scientific and technological developments on the other.
