A reader exploring the geographies of science and technology

Welcome to Locating Technoscience

This is the homepage of the Locating Technoscience reader, which builds on the ESRC funded 'Locating Technoscience' seminar series.

The aim of this reader is to introduce and contextualise a series of articles on the geographies of contemporary science and technology. The readings offer a partial, but we hope engaging entry point to this research, and we hope it will generate further discussion. Part of a more general ‘spatial turn’ in the social sciences, there has been a growing dialogue between Geographers and those in Science and Technology Studies (STS) interested in the geographies of technoscience. This work has drawn attention to the way that space matters in the production of science and technology; the implications of the circulation of expertise and materials in the situating of science and technology; as well as the importance of locating the effects of technoscience in their social, cultural, economic and political context.
