Professor Jim Petersen’s Work Recognized by the SSSS

Society for Social Studies of Science

The STS Infrastructure Award Committee is pleased to recognize the editors of the Handbooks of Science and Technology Studies with the 2017 Infrastructure Award. Each Handbook (1977, 1995, 2008, 2017) is the culmination of many years of careful planning and work by the editors – drafting a call, soliciting and selecting contributions, providing feedback, and co-ordinating a complex network of authors, texts, reviewers, publishers, guidelines, advisory committee members, and 4S Presidents and Council members. This is an excellent example of infrastructural work.
