Summary
  • "Knowledge, Technology and Law examines the interface between studies of law, science and society, from the perspectives of socio-legal studies and science and technology studies (STS). The relationships between law, science and society are central to a diverse range of practical, ethical and theoretical issues. With an increasing emphasis on the fluidity and uncertainty of each of these areas, the analysis of their intersection(s) has become complex. Accordingly, scholars have borrowed from a range of disciplines and case studies to analyse not only how such intersections materialize, but also how and from where they should be approached. Notably, STS has provided a basis to explore the links between science and society, and socio-legal studies has offered many tools to understand the relationships between law and society. In recent years, a growing number of scholars have borrowed from both fields in order to further their efforts to understand the interconnectedness of law, science and society. This collection charts the important interface between studies of law, science and society, as explored from the perspectives of socio-legal studies and the increasingly influential field of STS. It brings together scholars from both areas to interrogate the joint roles of law and science in the construction and stabilization of socio-technical networks, objects, and standards, as well as their place in the production of contemporary social realities and subjectivities.

  • "The relationships between law, science, and society are central to a diverse range of practical, ethical and theoretical issues. With an increasing emphasis on the fluidity and uncertainty of each of these areas, the analysis of their intersection(s) has become complex. This book examines the interface between studies of these topics from the socio-legal studies and science and technology studies (STS) perspectives. The scholars gathered here interrogate the joint roles of law and science in the construction and stabilization of socio-technical networks, objects, and standards, as well as their place in the production of contemporary social realities and subjectivities. Accordingly, scholars have borrowed from a range of disciplines and case studies to analyse not only how such intersections materialize, but also how and from where they should be approached. Knowledge, Technology and Law illustrates how these complex and multifaceted links between scientific knowledge, material artefacts, practices and identities can be charted. This volume presents original dialogues on this emerging field and will therefore be of great interest to those researching the intersections of law, science, and society"--
