About this product
- DescriptionCharting the rise and fall of an experimental biomedical facility at a North American university, Culturing Bioscience offers a fascinating glimpse into scientific culture and the social and political context in which that culture operates. Krautwurst nests the discussion of scientific culture within a series of levels from the lab to the global political ecomy. In the process he explores a number of topics, including: the social impact of techlogy; researchers' relationships with sophisticated equipment; what scientists actually do in a laboratory; what role science plays in the contemporary university; and the way bioscience interacts with local, regional, and global governments. The result is a rich case study that illustrates a host of contemporary issues in the social study of science.
- Author BiographyUdo Krautwurst is Associate Professor in the Department of Sociology and Anthropology at the University of Prince Edward Island. He is a social theorist with a particular interest in the anthropology of representation, practice, and the historical confrontations between forms of knowledge production and technology.
