The digitalSTS Handbook grew out of four events that brought together a community of scholars interested in the digital and its analytical and methodological potential in Science and Technology Studies:
- A double panel session at 4S 2011 in Cleveland, OH;
- A pre-conference workshop at 4S 2012 in Copenhagen, DK;
- A design and making workshop at the Harvard Arboretum in Cambridge, MA;
- A Handbook-oriented workshop at 4S 2013 in San Diego, CA.
Each workshop contributed to a community-driven and -elaborated sense of goals an orientation for the eventual publication. We have taken inspiration from participant’s comments and interactions and will continue to do so in order to shape the best possible handbook for our growing community in STS.
