This last aspect is especially important because a large part of current and future market niches need workers trained in STEM.</p> <p>Lastly, it is also necessary to reflect on the role of the social sciences and humanities within this STEM training and how it will be based on attending to the needs of today's societies and facing the great challenges that arise in the future.</p> <p><strong>Topics</strong></p> <ul> <li class="show">Current situation of STEM training.</li> <li class="show">Teaching STEM subjects in primary and secondary education.</li> <li class="show">Training needs of teachers in STEM subjects.</li> <li class="show">STEM and society training.</li> <li class="show">Needs for STEM profiles in the job market.</li> <li class="show">Role of social sciences and humanities in STEM training.</li> <li class="show">Art and creativity in STEM training.

Search and count the disappearance: techniques and methods <p>The "old" disappearance practices linked to the dictatorial regimes of the 70s in Latin America - which link with persistent forms of genocide and extermination of native populations - still have the news of everything that remains to be counted, discovered and judged. Together with these, we find today new forms of disappearance in which the perpetrator or cause is not always the State and when it is, its responsibility has to do many times more by omission than by action: feminicides and trafficking in women; migrants who disappear across borders from south to north (Mexico, the Mediterranean); multiple situations of violence and vulnerability (Guatemala, Colombia); there are even "without an apparent cause," ordinary disappearances. The examples abound and are the sign that the disappearance acquires a validity and persistence that we know undeniable. Moreover, the concept seems to have expanded and thus cover new situations, occur in other contexts, become more flexible, even universalized (Gatti, 2011, 2017). The disappearance is the concept that is used precisely to explain many of these situations for which the available vocabulary falls short</p> David Casado -Neira, Ignacio Irazuzta, María Martinez ##submission.copyrightStatement## Thu, 30 Jan 2020 18:09:58 +0100 Counting/Telling the Death and Disappearance of Persons in Migratory Context <p>This article presents research results on the factualization systems around people’s death and disappearance, implemented by non-governmental and governmental actors, in Arizona (United States). These systems are social practices, which translate the experience (or “world”) into facts (or “reality”); in those systems, quantification plays an important role. We analyze two couple of factualization techniques: counting/mapping and listing/counting. We conclude with a threefold distinction in our case study: counting as quantification; counting as telling; and counting as mattering.</p> Paola Díaz Lize ##submission.copyrightStatement## Thu, 30 Jan 2020 00:00:00 +0100 Counts, records and rescues: counting (and searching) practices of victims of sexual trafficking <p>Trafficking, especially sexual trafficking, has received an increasing attention in the last years. Many reports have been developed in order to give an account of the phenomenon: they generate numbers and create registers to help in the search of those victims. This article focuses on the practices of counting and searching of victims of sexual trafficking in order to open a debate on the (in)conmensurability of certain social phenomenon, our “epistemological vulnerability” to, finally, propose a wider conception of “to count”. The text is based on a bibliographical and documentary revision as well as on in-depth interviews with agencies (NGOs and the police) that work with victims of sexual trafficking in Spain.</p> María Martínez ##submission.copyrightStatement## Thu, 30 Jan 2020 00:00:00 +0100 Strained Places: Researching Deathscapes of Francoist Regime <table> <tbody> <tr> <td> <p>Repression during and after the Spanish Civil War was selective and symbolic in terms of the means and places where the executions were carried out, and the subsequent disposal of the bodies.

So much that the disappeared is through the search or not. In this article the search will be analyzed as research practices. Search is to investigate because those who search have to get with techniques and knowledges to restore the existence of the disappeared person. Based on ethnographic observations and interviews with several agents, the article analyzes the search practices, the professions involved in them, the techniques that are implemented and the generation of knowledge that search produces.</p> Ignacio Irazuzta ##submission.copyrightStatement## Thu, 30 Jan 2020 00:00:00 +0100 Disparities on the Internet Use among European Countries <p>Internet Use among European Countries has been analyzed attending data provided by the European Social Survey (2016). The present article aims to offer broader information regarding Internet use and remark existing disparities among participant countries on the Survey. Sociodemographic variables as gender, age, education level or country have been taken into consideration for presenting a descriptive analysis of data. Furthermore, the frequency of internet use and time spent online, both, have been examined to explore differences among them. Results and conclusions are presented for discussion.</p> Sabrina Femenia Mulet ##submission.copyrightStatement## Thu, 30 Jan 2020 00:00:00 +0100 The Autonomous Car: A better future? <table> <tbody> <tr> <td> <p>This article wants to analyze the technical and social dimensions of the autonomous car . Much is talked about the autonomous vehicle, which holds a better future. where there will be fewer accidents, will change the way people act, will bring great social and industrial developments. These vehicles will improve the safety and quality of life of people, wider urban spaces, less pollution and endless progress according to the opinion of experts. The automobile industries as well as some technology companies are working hard, because they want to be the first to build a fully autonomous vehicle. But on the other hand, people do not know in what phase the vehicles are located, how many levels there are, how an autonomous car works, how it will affect the industry, the market and everyday life. There are many gaps and questions to ask, as well as we can solve cybercrime or ethical issues arising from driving, before autonomous cars operate.</p> </td> </tr> </tbody> </table> Jesús Alberto Valero-Matas, Angie De la Barrera ##submission.copyrightStatement## Thu, 30 Jan 2020 00:00:00 +0100 The events of transition towards adulthood in Spain. The influence of the factors that determine them <p>The process of transition to adult life in Spain is less linear than how it was developed in past decades. To finish the studies, to incorporate to the labor market, to emancipate residentially, the life as a couple and to assume the paternity implies a continuum that is not always reproduced in an equal way and where a certain degree of reversibility of the transition events exists. In any case, whether transitions are more or less normalized or standardized, factors that influence the experience of transition events are involved. This study had tried to assess some of the elements that the specialized bibliography considers relevant in the transition processes such as age, sex, level of studies completed, risk of poverty, economic situation or type of habitat where it resides. With the data offered by the ECV (LCA) (Living Conditions Survey), a multivariate logistic regression analysis has been carried out, where it has been observed the probability that each of the aforementioned transition events will occur and according to the variables or factors chosen.</p> Francisco Javier Sánchez Galán ##submission.copyrightStatement## Thu, 30 Jan 2020 00:00:00 +0100 Who publishes in Sociology and Technoscience? <table> <tbody> <tr> <td> <p>This report reflects the activity of the journal <em>Sociology and Technoscience </em>from 2011 to 2019.
