First PC publication on EASST Review

And here we are, ready with the first publication by Processing Citizenship. The project’s PI, A. Pelizza, has indeed contributed with a new article to the November issue of the EASST Review.

The article was published as part of the “STS Multiple” section, which in this issue is dedicated to STePS, the department of Science, Technology and Policy Studies at the University of  Twente where the project is hosted.

The article illustrates the two sets of questions used to investigate how three types of identities are co-produced: those of migrants, polities, and territory. The first set of questions looks at which information is recorded in the systems and constitutes the digital identity of migrants when dealing with European actors, while the second directed set is directed at investigating alterity processing in relation to European polities.

The other articles in STS Multiple focus on the engaged “Twente Approach” (by S. Kuhlmann, K. Konrad, L. Roberts ), and on Constructive Technology Assessment (CTA) (by K. Konrad, A. Rip, V. Schulze Greiving ), one of the most succesful methodological contributions to STS by STePS.

EASST Review is the journal of the European Association for the Study of Science and Technology. It is published quarterly in March, June, September and December since 1996.
