Talking STS, a collection of interviews and accompanying reflections on the origins, present, and future of Science and Technology Studies (STS) is now published with the open-access journal Engaging STS, under their Traces section.
The volume assembles thoughts and recollections from leading figures in the making of this field at the fiftieth anniversary of the founding of the University of Edinburgh’s Science Studies Unit (SSU). While the Unit is a recurring theme of the volume, the interviews have a broader purpose – to present interviewees’ situated and idiosyncratic experiences and perspectives on STS, going beyond the contributions made to it by any one individual, department or institution. Together with the reflections, they prompt further discussion, reflection and questioning about this constantly evolving field.
