New collaborative ToE publication: History and Technology in an Age of Grand Challenges (Technology and Culture)

Just published: Forum ‘History and Technology in an Age of Grand Challenges.’ Technology and Culture Volume 61, Number 1, January 2020, pp.260-332

In 2016 we formed a number of transnational working groups to build research agendas and networks in the context of the Tensions of Europe flagship program Technology and Societal Challenges. By early 2019 that joint effort had resulted in over two dozen workshops and conferences, in which many relevant themes were debated with an ever-increasing number of interested and engaged scholars.This forum presents an introduction to the program and tentative findings from five of these working groups.
