CfP: Science as Culture Forum on "Big Tech"
APOLOGIES FOR CROSS-POSTINGS Dear all, I thought you might be interested in the attached call for papers. It's for a Forum on "Big Tech" in Science as Culture. These Forums are meant to be a faster form of special issue on current topics; they involve shorter papers refereed by the journal editors rather than peer reviewers. Full papers are welcome too, but they would have to go through the normal review process. Here's an example of a previous Forum I edited on "Techno-Economic Assumptions": https://www.tandfonline.com/toc/csac20/26/4 The point of this Forum is to turn an STS lens onto Big Tech. It's primarily motivated by an interest in trying to analyse the techno-economic dominance of Big Tech and the backlash this has engendered. For more, see the attached CfP. Please forward to anyone you think might be find it of interest. If you have any questions, then please feel free to email me. Thanks!
