Scope:

Science, society, technological and communicational transformations.

The link and current state between science and society, together with the expansion and development of information and communication technologies, in addition to environmental and health risks, are part of the central transformations in the societies of the 21st century. This is taking place rapidly and uncertainly in a contemporary context of health, economic and political crisis with vast consequences yet to be elucidated.

Given this scenario, scientific reflection and research are necessary to contribute to understanding, orientation and innovation in various areas: public health, distance education, virtualization and digitalization, citizenship and participation, social security, technologies and inequalities, family and institutional transformations, traceability and immunology, among others. Phenomena that are currently in tension and in dynamics of renewal or structural revolution.

This dossier has particular interest in the inclusion of analysis on these transformations experienced by society in recent times, their link with old and new inequalities, post-pandemic scenarios, opportunities and impact on cultural, scientific and socio-economic changes.

Topics:

  • Science and territorial development
  • Science, citizenship and current democracies
  • Epistemological and methodological transformations
  • Research in distance education and teleworking
  • Research in public health and health systems
  • Research on covid19, families and institutions
  • Innovation, digitalization and alternative technologies
  • Virtualization of societies in everyday life
  • Digitization of processes and their social, political and economic consequences
  • ICT and social inequalities
  • Analysis of uses, appropriations and different practices linked to ICTs.

CALL FOR PAPERS (January 2022)

Title of the monograph: Challenges and defiances of gender violence and new technologies

Coordinators: Rosa San Segundo and Celia López Ongil (Carlos III University of Madrid)

Proposal text:

Gender, Feminist and Women's Studies have introduced important theoretical contributions to scientific knowledge without which it would be impossible to understand the reality that surrounds us. Among the most important contributions to scientific knowledge is the consolidation of the gender category and feminist epistemology as a way to a more inclusive and less segregationist science. An essential analysis tool to understand the processes of inequality between men and women, and the development of a critical point of view that questions the traditional and androcentric way of doing science, presented itself as objective and with universal validity. One of the areas in which the application of the gender perspective is being more prolific is the technological and scientific development of the Internet of Things (IoT).

The Feminist Technoscience Studies (FTS) are confirming that the new digital technologies and artificial intelligence brought about by the Fourth Industrial Revolution are biased in terms of gender, sex, work, class, ethnicity, (dis) ability, and therefore, it is done An approach to new technologies and R & D & I from a gender perspective that does not exclude women or have repercussions on greater re-victimization and violence through technologies is essential. In a society where the application of the Internet of Things (IoT) in practically all areas of life is increasing, the challenge of technological development should be conceived as a tool that serves to achieve Sustainable Development Goal 5 "Gender equality" and allow the eradication of violence suffered by women for the mere fact of being.

In this call for papers, he makes a call for research articles, articles with a methodological approach, theoretical essays, theoretical-conceptual review articles and technological developments on the following thematic lines (among others):

  • Gender violence and new technologies
  • The gender perspective in technological development
  • Conceptualization and design of technological solutions from a gender perspective
  • Intersections between R + D + i technologies and gender equality
  • Interdisciplinary research on R + D + i with a gender perspective
  • Effects of gender biases in R & D & i and technologies
  • Proposals and technological challenges for the achievement of gender equality

IMPORTANT DATES

  • Deadline for receipt of full articles: June 15, 2021
  • Publication date: January 2022

All manuscripts must be submitted following the journal template and its rules. The interdisciplinarity of this area of knowledge will be valued.
