STS Italia logo

STS Italia – The Italian Association for Social Studies of Science and Technology was founded in 2005 to build up an Italian network of researchers oriented to study Science and Technology starting from the social dynamics which characterize and interweave science and technology themselves.

Nowadays the field of Science and Technology Studies (STS) represents a well established and prominent research field at the international level. As a field, it allows scholars and professionals from different disciplines to dialogue with each other. Furthermore, it mobilizes interests of both academic institutions and other social actors (e.g. not academic institutions, companies and so on).

The aim of STS Italia is to promote initiatives and events able to increase the visibility and diffusion of the STS approach, as well as to create chances for exchanging and sharing research experiences, projects and studies connected to social dimensions of technoscientific phenomena.

In collaboration with


Processing Citizenship is a European Research Council (ERC) funded project (grant agreement No 714463). We study registration and identification of third-country nationals in Europe as co-production of Alterity and European order. The Processing Citizenship team (PI Annalisa Pelizza, Chiara Loschi, Lorenzo Olivieri, Wouter Van Rossem, Paul Trauttmansdorff) organizes the round table in memoriam of Latour on June 28th and panel 42 "Revisiting identification and registration of humans and more-than-humans: long-term perspectives and implications". Bruno Latour's work has been a source of deep and lasting inspiration for Processing Citizenship.
