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:
- Gil Eyal, Brendan Hart, Emine Onculer, Neta Oren and Natasha Rossi, The Autism Matrix: The Social Origins of the Autism Epidemic. (Cambridge: Polity, 2010).
- Cyrus C. M. Mody, Instrumental Community: Probe Microscopy and the Path to Nanotechnology. (Cambridge: MIT Press, 2011).
Lawrence Busch’s new book "Standards" has just been added to the list of titles competing for the Merton book award. http://mitpress.mit.edu/catalog/item/default.asp?ttype=2&tid=12691
