Genealogies and Futures of Queer STS: Issues in Theory, Method, and Institutionalization

Stephen Molldrem, Mitali Thakor

We also narrate several critical new developments in academic collaborations in this growing subfield, from workshops to conference roundtables, and attempt to further develop Queer STS theory and praxis while negotiating the role of this nascent sphere of academic practice.
