The TransAsiaSTS network seeks to promote scholarly exchanges and collaborations in the field of Science & Technology Studies (or Science, Technology, and Society Studies; STS) across Asia, where both STS and Asia are broadly conceived. The network aspires to connect existing STS institutions, societies, and networks in South, East, and Southeast Asia, Australasia, and the Pacific, and draw in scholars and organizations working beyond already existing STS infrastructures as well.
H-Sci-Med-Tech is a network for scholars who apply humanities and social science methods to study science, medicine or technology across a wide variety of periods and regions of the world. While rooted in history, ours is a very interdisciplinary field, bringing together theories and methodologies from across the humanities and the social sciences.
