2017. Heidenreich. "Outreaching, Outsourcing, and Disembedding: How Offshore Wind Scientists Consider Their Engagement with Society"

The role of the individual scientist as a socialization agent (i.e., an actor who contributes to embedding technology into society) is increasingly emphasized in science policy. This article analyzes offshore wind scientists' narratives about science-technology-society relations and their role in...Read more

2016. Hinterberger. "Regulating Estrangement: Human–Animal Chimeras in Postgenomic Biology"

In particular, planners propose supplementing drinking water with reclaimed water as a sustainable solution to the growing challenge of urban water scarcity...Read more

2001. Guston. "Boundary Organizations in Environmental Policy and Science: An Introduction"

"Scholarship in the social studies of science has argued convincingly that what demarcates science from nonscience is not some set of essential or transcendent characteristics or methods but rather an array of contingent circumstances and strategic behavior known as “boundary work” (Gieryn 1995,...Read more

In the United States, bioethical experts in these...Read more

2010. Kropp and Wagner. "Knowledge on Stage: Scientific Policy Advice"
