Handbook of Science & Technology Studies, Volume 3


The 4S Council has authorized the planning of a fourth volume of the Handbook of Science & Technology Studies for publication in 2015. The Handbook series has drawn together an extensive array of research syntheses with an eye toward defining, or perhaps better, mapping the major intellectual geographies of the field.

In this, the fourth official volume of the Handbook of Science and Technology Studies, we continue this tradition, while also expanding on it. Our aim is to continue to highlight key emerging terrains and major intellectual problems within the field, while also placing a new emphasis on defining the relevance of the field for other disciplines and for tackling the deep and widespread challenges confronting humanity in the 21st century.

As part of the planning process, the editorial team would like your input and feedback. Please visit to find out more about the project and to provide your thoughts.
