Towards Further Dialogue Between Law and Science and Technology Studies

Research output: Other contribution


The past decade of my scholarly endeavours has been devoted to drawing upon insights from science and technology studies (STS), a broad field that brings together insights from a range of disciplines to examine the relationships between science, technology and society. My engagement up to now has been in public health and new health technologies. My most recent use of insights from STS is found in a special issue on ‘Law, Biomedical Technoscience and Imaginaries’ (Journal of Law and the Biosciences, co-edited with Richard Ashcroft). There, deploying the concept of imaginaries, we argue for further law-led engagement with concepts and ideas popular in STS and cognate disciplines. The special issue also provides a first step in a new project that seeks to facilitate further dialogue between law and STS.
