Good opportunity to be named as a contributing editor in the forthcoming Handbook of STS

From the Technoscience update:

4S Seeks Editors for 4th Handbook of Science and Technology Studies

The Society for Social Studies of Science Publications Committee invites proposals for the fourth edition of The Handbook of Science and Technology Studies.  The Handbook consists of state-of-the-art review articles, along with occasionally more specific articles, that cover the current range of research in science and technology studies.  The 3rd edition was published in 2008.  At this point we are looking for a team of four editors who will enlist authors to write the full range of articles.

In your proposal, provide names and affiliations of editors along with a 1 paragraph biography outlining each editor’s areas of expertise.  Also include proposed section and chapter titles with brief outlines that scope out substantive coverage in each chapter.  Please submit electronic copies of your proposal by 15 October 2011 to Stephen Zehr, Chair of the 4S Publications Committee (szehr@usi.edu).  Proposals will be reviewed by members of the Publications Committee.  Once a team of editors has been selected, the Publications Committee will make suggestions regarding topical omissions, overlap, editors, potential authors and so forth to facilitate the project.
