Actor Network Theory Resource Page (Annotated Bibliography) ("Actor-network theory grew up in science and technology studies as an attempt to understand 'materiality' - the ways in which social and technical relations are embodied and perform themselves in the ordering and re-ordering of texts, artefacts, and the natural world. It assumes that relations ramify through such heterogeneous materials in the form of a 'seamless web' - and indeed that for many purposes, for instance in the 'heterogeneous engineering' of entrepreneurs or scientists, the distinction between [for instance human and non human] is irrelevant") (John Law, Lancaster U.)

UCSB Transcriptions Project An NEH-funded curricular development and research initiative started in 1998 by the English Dept. at UC Santa Barbara to focus on literary study and information society. The goal of is to demonstrate a paradigm—at once theoretical, instructional, and technical—for integrating new information media and technology within the core work of a traditional humanities discipline. Transcriptions seeks to "transcribe" between past and present understandings of what it means to be a literate, educated, and humane person. [Show]
