Technology and Society

Rapid technological progress has the power to unlock human potential while simultaneously disrupting social, political, legal, and economic processes. Institutional paradigms urge a reconsideration, to evaluate our understanding of the relationship between humans and technology/machines, and whether technology is itself an institution.

Projects based in or relating to the Global South are of particular interest, where the adoption of new technologies, often driven through top-down policy, is characterised as ‘progress’ - without consideration of its impact on socio-economic, cultural and political systems. Technological change is linked with questions that are simultaneously political, environmental, socio-economic, and cultural. These represent significant challenges concerning ethnicity, gender, class, caste, age, the presence of violence, and the barriers that these pose to voice and representation.

This call for abstracts invites submissions that interrogate interdisciplinary perspectives, embracing different aspects such as: Society and Institutions; Web3 and Institutions; Technology and Trust; as well as Sustainability and Technology, among others.

Ph.D. scholars in economics, law, sociology, anthropology, development studies, and other related disciplines are encouraged to apply. You should currently be enrolled in a Ph.D. or doctoral research programme. Successful applicants will be invited to present their research to a supportive audience of peers and senior scholars, and receive constructive conceptual and methodological critique.

Participants must submit an abstract of no more than 500 words, indicating 3 to 5 keywords, and a short bio that includes your discipline and institution. Submissions from the Global South will receive particular attention.

Submissions should be sent using the apply button, any questions or concerns should be directed to

Deadline: Friday, April 21, 2023. Successful applicants will be notified by Friday, May 5, 2023.

Accepted abstracts will be presented virtually on the Zoom platform on Tuesday, May 23, 2023.
