Artefacts: Studies in the History of Science and Technology Series : Titles in Order

Book 10
The latest volume in the Artefacts series, Objects in Motion: Globalizing Technology delves into globalization’s various manifestations throughout the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Each chapter highlights the movement of a specific object within the global economy. Transported out of their original localized frames of meaning, these objects are resignified in new contexts, connected by the interplay of the global landscapes. Bringing together the methods and objects of study from anthropology and the history of technology, Objects in Motion explores the technological, cultural, and political dimensions of globalization in the past and the present.
Book 9
This ninth volume of the Artefacts series explores how artists have responded to developments in science and technology, past and present. Rather than limiting the discussion to art alone, editors Anne Collins Goodyear and Margaret Weitekamp also asked contributors to consider aesthetics: the scholarly consideration of sensory responses to cultural objects. When considered as aesthetic objects, how do scientific instruments or technological innovations reflect and embody culturally grounded assessments about appearance, feel, and use? And when these objects become museum artifacts, what aesthetic factors affect their exhibition? Contributors found answers in the material objects themselves. This volume reconsiders how science, technology, art, and aesthetics impact one another.
