Abstract [en]

There is an emerging Development studies and STS dialogue that is addressing various topics and problems of development from diverse theoretical approaches. This paper will provide an overview of recently published scholarship (in the last 10-20years) that is at the intersection of STS and development, in orderto begin to map out the types of work being done, the types of questions being raised and the methods/theory being used toaddress them. We will merge the overview of recent scholarship with the papers presented in the session on Development and STS to highlight the questions, challenges, and opportunities occurring at this intersection. We will develop questions to be discussed at the end of the session in order to generate, motivate and encourage our own thinking about development and STS and implications for our future research in this area.
