STS Concepts

pictureFor many years I have been working alongside a number of eminent Science and Technology Studies researchers. During that time I have come across many concepts that at first baffled me, then intrigued me and then prompted me to dig into their conceptual history. This blog provided me with a good space to engage in this type of conceptual digging. However, as my conceptual archaeology is scattered all over the blog, I thought it is time to bring my blog posts on these matters together in one place.

Core concepts


Regulatory science


Citizen science



Deficit model


Other interesting concepts

Responsible innovation

Responsive research

Anticipation and prediction


Science communication
