Re: [jox] Special issue for CSPP: DRAFT!!!

I was thinking that we would put out a detailed overview of the first issue content with article titles and possibly summaries so it might be a bit long if we tack on your call?


i can post the call to the Ecrea mailing list and the 4S website (society for the social studies of science)

While we are on the subject I can post to the following lists

Are there any others that should be alerted? If anyone is on a list not above that you think would be interested could you please let me know if you can forward the announcements - thanks.

wait  for proposals  to turn up...

we're already doing that

>finalised. The announcement for the inaugural issue will go out
next  week, and I suppose you can send out you call
straight after, though  an end of June deadline might now
be tight?

i think you should put the two announcements together, if
possible. anyhow, we'll start spamming the call right away when
the first issue is online

associated  with software development. This is now changing
as new walks of  life are being explored with a hacker
mindset, thus bringing back  to memory the origin of
hacking in hardware development. Now as  then, the hacker
is characterised by an active approach to  technology,
undaunted by hierarchies and established knowledge, and
finally a commitment to sharing information freely. In this
special  issue of Critical Studies in Peer Production, we
will investigate  how these ideas and practices are
spreading. Two cases which have  caught much attention in
recent years are open hardware development  and garage
biology. The creation of hacker/maker-spaces in many
cities around the world has provided an infrastructure
facilitating  this development. We are looking for both
empirical and theoretical  contributions which critically

the legal implications of these  practices. We welcome
contributions from all the social sciences,  including
science & technology studies, design and art-practices,
anthropology, legal studies, etc.
