Special Issue of Economy and Society: Materials and Devices of the Public

by Javier Lezaun

Economy & SocietyNoortje Marres and I have edited a special section of the journal Economy and Society dedicated to Materials and Devices of the Public. The papers (by Gay Hawkins, Sarah Whatmore & Catharina Landström, Javier Lezaun, and Noortje Marres) explore the role of things, devices and material settings in facilitating new forms of public engagement. In the introduction, we discuss the value of an approach that treats material engagement as a distinct and explicitly political mode of performing the public.
