Update on the Merton book award of the Science, Knowledge and Technology section of the ASA.

We are still accepting nominations   for the Merton book award of the Science, Knowledge and Technology section of the ASA.

What book(s) do you think might have a chance at the Merton award?

Write the Merton book award committee with your nomination, or just write me and I’ll pass it along to the committee.

So far, we have two strong nominations, which are:

  1. Gil Eyal, Brendan Hart, Emine Onculer, Neta Oren and Natasha Rossi, The Autism Matrix: The Social Origins of the Autism Epidemic. (Cambridge: Polity, 2010).

About Nicholas

Associate Professor of Sociology, Environmental Studies, and Science and Technology Studies at Penn State, Nicholas mainly writes about understanding the scientific study of states and, thus, it is namely about state theory. Given his training in sociology and STS, he takes a decidedly STS-oriented approach to state theory and issues of governance.
