Abstract

This conversation presents three perspectives on the trajectoriesof interaction between Science & technology studies and Media studies inthree different national contexts: Germany, France and Italy. Each of thecontributions focuses on a specific country and adopts a distinctive stand-point to unfold howSTSand media studies have interacted or have main-tained boundaries and differences between them. The first contributionabout Germany moves from the outcomes of two workshops on these topics and highlights howSTSand Media studies seem to tap into each other ina highly selective manner, filling some of their conceptual and empirical gaps,but not engaging in an actual mutual discussion. The second text assumes as fulcrum the concepts of“mediation” and “dispositif”in order to argue that,in France, theseideashas played the role of a “boundary objects” enabling adialogue between the two different fields. Finally, the third and last input tothis conversation reconstructs some of the trajectories that led specificgroups or individuals working in communication studies in Italy to connectwithSTSframeworks, arguing that the concept of “mediation” emerges as aproductive common ground for both communication andSTSscholars.
