Abstract:
My PhD thesis explores the nature of Nanoscale Science and Technology, in particular how this new and emergent research field is constructed in science practice. I examine the sociotechnological worlds of scientists in NST, in particular their disciplinary identity construction, and their negotiation of NST as a research field. I identify three dimensions of identity here: belonging, practice, and strategy.
