6TH INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE IN INTERPRETIVE POLICY ANALYSIS

Call for papers or proposals:
6TH INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE IN INTERPRETIVE POLICY ANALYSIS: DISCURSIVE SPACES. POLITICS, PRACTICES AND POWER
http://www.ipa-2011.cardiff.ac.uk/

I am soliciting papers for the panel:

Panel 20: Globalizing Technology and Innovation Policies: Interpretative and Critical Approaches Chair: Jeremy Hunsinger, Center for Digital Discourse and Culture, Virginia Tech
Send proposals to: jhuns@vt.edu

This panel addresses technology and innovation policies as politico-ethico-juridico- technical systems comprised of arrangements of things and peoples. Through it, we are particularly interested in the transitions these systems undergo as they migrate from local and national applications to transnational and global systems. These systems undergo significant translations, modifications, and reorganizations as they come to match the sensemaking practices of global and transnational interests and their policymaking regimes. Examples of such transitions and translations ongoing now are: questions of information technology, intellectual property, genetically modified organisms, internet governance, STEM education funding, Mode 2 centered research funding and many, many others.

Given the plurality of possibilities for this panel, it is important to maintain two themes in your submissions: 1. center on technology, innovation, or research policy, 2. the trend from local to global in the application of these policies.    As fitting with the core concepts of the conference, this panel will consider critical and interpretive approaches with those two themes

Submissions due 5 February, 2011
