the relationship of human and non-human (animal, machine, etc.)
the issues of material culture, space, place and landscape
the relationship of science and art and the issue of scientific representation
the border between social and natural sciences
the relationship of science and activism, politics and power
and many others
The deadline for abstracts has been extended until 20 September 2011.
