TECHNOLOGY STUDIES, (The Journal with Open Peer Commentaries), presents its

First Call for Papers for the
Special Issue on TECHNOLOGY AND THE NATURAL ENVIRONMENT
__________________________________________________ _________________________

TECHNOLOGY STUDIES announces a Special Issue on Technology and the Natural
Environment. TS is a multidisciplinary, international journal published by
Walter de Gruyter, Inc. (Berlin and New York). The Editor for this Special
Issue is Tony Redpath, Ontario Centre for Materials Research.

The issue on Technology and the Natural Environment will provide a forum for
discussion of environmental issues which arise from the implementation of
specific technologies, as well as more general concerns about the increasingly
technological nature of society and the implications this has for both local
and global environments. Technology includes: hardware; technology practices
including human behaviour and related technology; techniques or skills
involving a significant technical component. Dimensions of environment
include the various aspects of the bio-physical environment such as:
environmental disasters and crises, environmental management, local, regional
or global environmental change, pollution, resource management, species
diversity, endangered species/spaces preservation, species utilization, and
aspects of the related social, economic, political and physical system
relationships and dynamics, etc.

Papers should address environmental issues likely to contribute to an
understanding of the proper use of technology, and of its role in society.
The editors welcome papers that are critical, reflective, daring, insightful,
thorough and most importantly, advance our thinking and understanding about
broadly relevant technology/environmental issues.

DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSION IS JUNE 1, 1994
