Organisation profile

The Centre for Science Studies promotes interdisciplinary research across the boundaries of science, technology, and public policy. The Centre brings together research and teaching in all four faculties at Lancaster University, including the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences, the School of Health and Medicine, Lancaster University Management School and the Faculty of Science and Technology.

Diverse expertise and interests

Our research problematises the construction of scientific knowledge and expert authority. We take diverse approaches including feminist STS, actor-network theory (and after), cultural analyses of science, anthropological and postcolonial technoscience studies.

Our research involves collaboration between specialists in the natural sciences, social sciences and the humanities. We were part of the Sociology unit of assessment in the 2014 Research Excellence Framework (REF), ranked 3rd in the UK for its world-leading resarch.
