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. Nice line: “For this reason infratheory is not “post-” anything. It is not post-critical, post-modern, post-metaphysical, or post-human. Infratheory prefers to live in the muck of the present; it is an amphibious creature at once submerged in the writhing latex of a deep swamp, and at the same time lives in the florid spaciousness of dry land.”
