Summary
"In Cyborgs & Citadels, some of this country's thinkers explore such questions as how science gains authority to direct truth practices (the "Citadel" problem), the boundaries between humans and machines, and how science, technology, and medicine contribute to the fashioning of everyday lives and selves (the "Cyborg" problem). Their Fieldwork sites include a prenatal sonogram clinic, an inner-city AIDS clinic, a molecular biotechnology lab, a conference on Marfan syndrome, a center for brain imaging technology, a particle physics lab, an undergraduate engineering program, and the School of American Research advanced seminar that gave rise to this volume. A special section titled "Corridor Talk" offers essential and hard-to-find advice on careers, publication opportunities, and grant writing for scholars of emerging sciences, technologies, and medicines."--Jacket
