Science and Technology Network
The network studies technology and technological networks and their interactions with social and economic change
The Science and Technology network is interested in papers and session proposals exploring science-society interactions and technology-society interactions within and across historical periods and geographical regions. We also welcome papers addressing social and ideological perceptions of science and technology within historiography and critiques thereof. We are particularly interested in case studies and critical reviews addressing ‘border crossings’ between the scientific and technological. Papers could address particular technoscientific practices in historical periods and geographical locations, encounters between different technoscientific practices, knowledge traditions or the identification of individuals, groups and institutions with particular technoscientific constructs and traditions.
