Activist Studies of Science and Technology

This series will publish accessible, engaging books on science and technology in support of movements for justice and sustainability around the world. We seek submissions by scholars from a wide range of disciplines internationally and are especially interested in publishing:

  • Historical and social science research on social and political activism in science, technology, and/or medicine and on the impact of new technologies on activism
  • Critical histories of science, technology, or medicine that aid in understanding issues of current political relevance
  • Applications of STS (science and technology studies) theory to support social movements and/or to reconstruct technoscience along activist lines
  • Critical studies in the political economy of science, technology, and/or medicine
  • Biographies, oral histories, and memoirs of activist scientists
