About this product
- DescriptionAn increasing number of scholars have begun to see science and techlogy as relevant issues in International Relations (IR), ackwledging the impact of material elements, technical instruments, and scientific practices on international security, statehood, and global governance. This two-volume collection brings the debate about science and techlogy to the center of International Relations. It shows how integrating science and techlogy translates into vel analytical frameworks, conceptual approaches and empirical puzzles, and thereby offers a state-of-the-art review of various methodological and theoretical ways in which sciences and techlogies matter for the study of international affairs and world politics. The authors t only offer a set of practical examples of research frameworks for experts and students alike, but also propose a conceptual space for interdisciplinary learning in order to improve our understanding of the global politics of science and techlogy. This first volume summarizes various time-tested approaches for studying the global politics of science and techlogy from an IR perspective. It also provides empirical, theoretical, and conceptual interventions from geography, history, invation studies, and science and techlogy studies that indicate ways to enhance and rearticulate IR approaches. In addition, several interviews advance possibilities of multi-disciplinary collaboration.
