RC23 Poster Session - Session Description:
From the HIV/AIDS epidemic to climate change, some of the world’s most challenging social problems have both their origins and potential solutions in science and technology. These so-called “wicked problems” are extremely complex, difficult to define, and do not necessarily have a single solution. Scientific knowledge and new technologies are often critical for addressing wicked problems, however, because of their complexity, uncertainty is inevitable. For this reason, rational scientific and more culturally derived understandings of these concerns often collide, making wicked problems a critical area for sociological inquiry. This session encourages broad discussion of the ways science and technology are linked to wicked social problems as well as consideration of the role different types of knowledge play in shaping perceptions of both the origins and potential solutions to these types of issues. We encourage papers that bridge sociological subdisciplines, connecting sociology of science and technology to other subdisciplines (e.g. medical sociology, environmental sociology, economic sociology). Contributions that focus on theoretical and methodological issues are also welcome. Finally, the session also encourages submissions that examine wicked problems in different social contexts around the world and consider ways sociological understanding of these issues may help on-the-ground efforts to address them.
