About

I am a political sociologist specializing in the politics of technologies and knowledge claims.  I’m especially interested in how military technologies and forms of discourse spread and are taken up in everyday life, shaping racegendered affective and embodied experiences. My work has appeared in sociological and science studies journals, and books that include Disrupting Science:  scientists, social movements and the politics of the military (Princeton, 2008) and The Routledge Handbook of Science, Technology and Society (with D.L. Kleinman, 2014).  I teach courses on the sociology and politics of food, and courses on the relationship between science, technology and power.  For more than 30 years I have been engaged in knowledge justice projects in the universities and departments where I have worked, and in my two major professional associations, the Society for Social Studies of Science, and the American Sociological Association.
