About STS at Oxford

Welcome to Science and Technology Studies at Oxford — the collaborative blog of STS-inclined scholars at the University of Oxford. We are mainly based at Saïd Business School and the Institute for Science, Innovation and Society, but have friends and colleagues in many other departments.

This blog is written and updated collectively by members of the group. If you would like to contribute, just e-mail the editors:
