The increasing formalization of STS research networks in the Nordic countries prompts a discussion of how research and academic work in the region is constituted – what makes something ‘Nordic’ STS as opposed to just ‘regular’ STS? Similarly, the degree to which international STS theories can be translated into a Nordic institutional context is a matter of importance for assessing the type of work that is being done by Nordic STS researchers. The article provides an overview of STS-related institutions and activities in the Nordic countries, and discusses the diffusion and diffraction of STS theory across national and institutional barriers.
