Book publication: 'How Making & Doing expands STS'

3 September 2021
Teun Zuiderent-Jerak and Gary Downey published a new book 'Making & Doing: Activating STS through Knowledge Expression and Travel'

Together with contributors from around the world, they present and critically assess 10 Making & Doing projects. They recount how their projects advance Science and Technology Studies (STS), and how they themselves learn from their interlocutors and the settings in which they do and share their STS work. They reflect upon their dilemmas, frustrations, and failures, especially when these generate new practices that might not have occurred had their work not taken the form of Making & Doing scholarship. A coda explains how the infrastructures of STS scholarship are broadening to include practices of Making & Doing.


“Making & Doing advances a critical science and technology studies that endeavors to be reflexive, collaborative, and publicly engaged — and, therefore, that can truly matter. These timely, experimental perspectives boldly challenge STS dogma, and elucidate crucial new pathways for scholarship.” 
- Alondra Nelson, President of the Social Science Research Council

“Richly populated with researchers and their interlocutors, these accounts describe (often uneasy) relations and always contingent practices of knowledge creation. They connect up multiple modes of scholarship with differently mediated forms of intervention and question their uneven valuation. Read together, the ten evocative cases collected here stand as 'demo accounts' for what is itself a transformative project-in-process for STS.”
- Lucy Suchman, Professor Emerita at Lancaster University

“Making & Doing is an exceptional book. Gary Downey and Teun Zuiderent-Jerak invite the reader to join them on a fascinating trip to ten different sites where STS knowledge moves beyond the boundaries of the field. Carefully brought together, the essays fill a gap between STS research and STS in action, opening up a space of reflexive learning from engagements in empirical arenas. The book is highly innovative and inspiring as it encourages the reader to understand knowledge expression and travel not as lying outside of the core of STS scholarship but as essential and lively activities at the very heart of the field.”
- Ulrike Felt, Professor at the University of Vienna

“STS has always gone beyond critique to ask how knowledge and technical practices might be made differently. In response, making & doing practices have rapidly grown as a scholarly genre that puts urgent questions of ethics and methods in the spotlight. Assembled by two leaders in the field and gathering some of the most thought-provoking practitioners, this book places making & doing in its rightful location at the center of STS futures.”
- Michelle Murphy, Professor at the University of Toronto
