On-line publishing initiative on the geographies of science

Colleagues from the Department of Geography and the Department of Science and Technology Studies at UCL have collaborated in the development of a new on-line resource, the Locating Technoscience Reader.

On-line publishing initiative on the geographies of science

The Locating Technoscience Reader emerges out of a two-year ESRC Research Seminar Series, which ran 2005 to 2007, exploring the changing geographies of science and technology.

The Reader introduces key articles on the geographies of contemporary science and technology.  It is divided into six sections, exploring geographical issues in the history of science, the production of science, circulating science, embodying science, governing science and the futures of technoscience.  Each section has an introductory essay, a list of key articles and further reading, with links to on-line versions of key articles and book chapters where possible.  The reader is interactive, with the opportunity to add comments and references through the Citeulike library, making it an evolving resource for research and teaching in this innovative area of geography.

The reader has been put together by Gail Davies (UCL Geography), Brian Balmer (UCL STS), Kezia Barker (Geography Birkbeck) Rob Doubleday (Cambridge Geography) and Richard Milne (UCL STS), with the help of participants in the seminar series.
