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.

    • Much appreciated; but the thanks goes to dmfant for finding it; still: we have talked about this before too! About Olympic stadiums, derelict ships, abandoned non-state places, etc. We need theories of dereliction badly!
