Technoscience, Law and Society

Welcome to the AHRC Network 'Technoscience, Law & Society'

Breaking down barriers

Our events

The Network will be organized around 5 events, in 2013 and 2014, through which we will interrogate various facets of the interaction between law, technoscience and society. Further information regarding these events can be found using the link below, or alternatively you can contact us.

Advances in science and technology are closely entangled with the making and deployment of law and legal processes in society. Law is often looked at as a way to control and shape science, while others see regulation as a means of stimulating innovation. Legal decision-making is at times described as being increasingly dependent on expertise, while others draw attention to the interdependency between governance and the production of knowledge. The role of materials in shaping legal processes, and in turn the role of law in producing materiality, are now seen as important elements of critical explorations of the law. This project aims to bring together an interdisciplinary network of scholars and practitioners seeking to explore these and other aspects of the relationship between law, technoscience and society.
