SSOS Monthly Meetings

The SSOS Network monthly meetings is an initiative that brings together (early career) scholars in the social sciences of outer space to share resources, suggestions, struggles and opportunities.

We hold informal monthly meetings to gather and discuss select topics related to outer space research. Themes range from research challenges and publication opportunities to current space events and reports from the field. Members are also able to suggest their own topics, present their work, and solicit feedback from other members. We also collect and share information on conferences and similar events so that attendees can more easily catch up and meet face-to-face. More than anything, the initiative is a way to informally and interactively grow the Social Studies of Outer Space Network, so we are always open to hear suggestions and ideas for activities.

The meetings take place every third Tuesday of the month at 2PM UTC/GMT, on Google Meets (December 2022 is an exception as it will be on Thursday 15th at 6PM UTC/GMT).

If you would like to be sent a reminder and be kept up to date with the latest news, please join the SSOS Network mailing list. You can subscribe to the calendar here.
