Society for Social Studies of Science conference

November 8–11, 2023 | Honolulu, HI

Welcome to our conference hub for the 2023 Society for the Social Studies of Science (4S) conference! We are excited to be celebrating with you all virtually this year.

Got an interdisciplinary book you want some editing or indexing help with? You can schedule a free Zoom consultation with IoF founder Cathy Hannabach to learn how our team of editors, indexers, researchers, and publishing consultants can help get your book out into the world.

Below, you can check out our #4SHonolulu Imagine Otherwise podcast playlist as well as the latest science studies books we have edited and/or indexed.

Even if you can’t attend in person, you can follow along with the conversations at the conference hashtag #4SHonolulu.
