Founded in 2005, the Technology, Knowledge & Society Research Network is brought together by a shared interest in the complex and subtle relationships between technology, knowledge and society. The perspectives of our members range from big picture analyses which address global and universal concerns, to detailed case studies which speak of localized applications of technology. We aim to traverse a broad terrain, sometimes technically and other times socially oriented, sometimes theoretical and other times practical in their perspective, and sometimes reflecting dispassionate analysis while at other times suggesting interested strategies for action. Our aim is to build an epistemic community where we can make linkages across disciplinary, geographic, and cultural boundaries. As a Research Network, we are defined by our scope and concerns and motivated to build strategies for action framed by our shared themes and tensions.
When you join the Technology, Knowledge & Society Research Network, you become part of an international network of scholars, researchers, and practitioners. Membership makes our independent organization possible. Membership also comes with many benefits, including subscriber access to all electronic publications, discounts to conference registrations, and a range of other opportunities to stay connected and be supported by the Network. If you are not already a member, we encourage you to find out more. Join today to connect with a movement of likeminded researchers, get access to a large body of knowledge, and professional development opportunities, and let our Research Network become the advocate of what you do.
