Critical Commentary

In this 2015 article, David Hess uses his experiences studying with renewable energy advocates to problematize the theoretical framework Talyor Dotson employs to construct a democratic politics of technology. Rather than resorting to the "unicausal method of semiotic or psychocultural analysis," Hess suggests the trifold conceptual framework of field theory: meaning, agency, structure (2015, 122).
