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.

  1. if you track that back to youtube there are a number of interesting “object” oriented talks at that channel.

    • Oh, sure. Sorry about that. We are still working with the journal, but there is no harm in posting the basic ideas. Also, the book we reviewed (I was getting my reviews mixed up) is his book “Doing things with video games” … the other book, about post-humanism, was a book from Miccoli, about post-human suffering. I could post on that one later too.
