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. was just at a sermon by bruce katz selling his metro-revolution (really a repackaging of florida’s now largely recanted trickledown “creative” class/warfare) and asked if he has seen anyone/any-city acting to adapt to the new environs (econ, politics, climate, etc) before they get badly hurt by it and he had nothing to offer (hadn’t even considered it), I think we have to work instead on how we might salvage something that doesn’t depend on mass/govt/Inc fore-thinking/planning.
