As the Turkish Scholarly Network for Science and Technology Studies, one of the objectives of STS TURKEY is to increase the visibility of STS in Turkey by promoting relevant field research and training activities. Regarding the aim of conveying basic STS theoretical frameworks, concepts and related discussions at introductory-level, last January, we organized our first Winter School supported by Orient-Institut in Istanbul.
The second STS TURKEY Science, Technology and Society Winter School will be held on 14-16 January 2020 at METU Design Factory, Ankara. The Winter School supported by Bilkent University and METU Design Factory will provide 10 lectures by senior researchers and professors from different disciplines within three days, and will be completed with a half-day discussion, where the participants come up their current research subjects. The lectures will be held in English or Turkish based on the title of the lecture.
The list of lectures and trainers is provided below.
