Description - Doing Science + Culture by Roddey Reid
Featuring the work of an all-star cast of writers, Doing Science + Culture is a collection of new work in the cultural study of science, technology, and medicine. The contributors include anthropologists, sociologists, literature/communication scholars, and historians of science who focus on the analysis of science and scientific discourses within culture, rather than 'doing' science. Serving as a road map to the next stage of work in the cultural study of science, this book is a vital contribution by 'science watchers' - cultural analysts who will be explaining how and why we should look at the way science is used and talked about in the contemporary world. Itty Abraham, Anne Balsamo, Karen Barad, Michael M.J. Fischer, Joan H. Fujimura, Scott F. Gilbert, Emily Martin, Jackie Orr, Roddey Reid, Molly Rhodes and Sharon Traweek
