Review of P Sormani’s ‘Respecifying Lab Ethnography’ by Goetz Hoeppe #sssi #sociology #emca

In interactionism as well as in ethnomethodology there has been a long standing concern with and interest in science and technology study. At the recent SSSI Annual Conferences in New York (2013) and Chicago (2015), for example, the Distinguished Lectures were delivered by Joan Fujimura and Diane Vaughn respectively, both scholars who have shaped the field of science and technology studies. In ethnomethodology, of course, Harold Garfinkel and more in particular Michael Lynch have undertaken science studies and ethnomethodological studies of work in laboratories as part of the ‘Studies of Work’ programme (Garfinkel 1986). It is interesting to see how this field of research currently develops with studies of the Mars Rover by Janet Vertesi, a book that will shortly be reviewed in Symbolic Interaction, or Philippe Sormani’s “Respecifying Lab Ethnography” that has just been reviewed by Goetz Hoeppe. Hoeppe’s review can be read here and by clicking on the image below.
