In the Journals… July 2012, Part 2

You can find Part One of this month’s In the Journals… feature here.

This month’s Science, Technology, & Human Values  focuses on “Experiments in Context and Contexting“. Tiago Moreira argues that singularities in social science research are woven into political orders in two related ways: through an unraveling of sociotechnical ties and through the uniqueness of persons caught in standardized policies. Brita Brenna searches for relevant context to understand a Norwegian natural history, while Law and Moser explore the contexts of foot-and-mouth disease control strategies in the UK. Finally, Kristin Asdal uses actor-network theory resources as a historicizing method and Vicky Singleton discusses three contexts in her article on feminism and accountability in UK cattle farming.

Social Science & Medicine is currently published as a multi-volume for July, August and September 2012. Thus there are a lot of new articles out right now. A selection:
