"Doing" Theory and Practice: Steps Toward a More Productive Relationship Between Science and Technology Studies and Nontraditional Science Education Practices
MetadataShow full item record
In a postscript, I conclude by urging all researchers within the field of STS to begin to recognize that maintaining the false split between our academic research, undergraduate teaching, university outreach, and community involvement is a failed project. As STS researchers, I believe it is, in fact, our obligation to our local and global communities to adopt an interventionist strategy and to use our work â without apology â for directly political ends. Challenging the technoscientific-political context in which we live always involves a level of real risk â but it is also our only opportunity to achieve real success. Our participation in this challenge is a responsibility to ourselves and to our communities that we must recognize and accept. This participation should not be shunned, but rather applauded.
