Reviews

Science and technology studies (STS) is one of the most exciting new interdisciplinary fields in the academy. This indispensable collection by leading young STS scholars examines digital technologies, methods, and networks. Global in scope, well-crafted with introductions to different sections, and brimming with deep insights, this timely book is set to become a classic. --Trevor Pinch, Cornell University This volume addresses the growing intersections of STS with sites and practices shaped by digital technologies, assembling a diverse but concentrated collection of researchers and approaches in a single source. It will be a tremendously valuable starting place for readers interested in the field and a continuing resource for research and teaching. --Lucy Suchman, Lancaster University, UK This delightful collection of thought-provoking essays, case studies, and research findings creates a coherent story out of the disparate threads that have helped animate digital science and technology studies. digitalSTS is an essential volume, helping junior scholars get their bearings while also enabling reflexivity among those deeply immersed in this field. --danah boyd, principal researcher at Microsoft Research, founder of Data & Society, and author of It's Complicated: The Social Lives of Networked Teens A dazzling collection of STS writing and thinking--an indispensable handbook for the next generation of science and technology studies. --Paul N. Edwards, author of A Vast Machine: Computer Models, Climate Data, and the Politics of Global Warming
