Welcome to the Centre for Science Studies

Our research involves collaboration between specialists in the natural sciences, social sciences and the humanities. We were part of the Sociology unit of assessment in the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise, recognised as one of the top 5 in the UK for the quality of its sociological research.

Diverse expertise and interests

Our research problematises the construction of scientific knowledge and expert authority. We take diverse approaches including feminist STS, actor-network theory (and after), cultural analyses of science, anthropological and postcolonial technoscience studies.
