Engineering Professor Co-Edits Book on Technology and Society

Charlottesville, VA | Posted on December 2nd, 2008

Published by MIT Press, the book focuses on the interconnections of technology, society and values and includes writings by authorities such as Freeman Dyson, Lawrence Lessig, Bruno Latour and Judy Wajcman. Among the topics are "Technology and Social Justice," "Code is Law," "Nanotechnology and the Developing World" and "Icarus 2.0: A Historian's Perspective on Human Biological Enhancement."

Johnson is the Anne Shirley Carter Olsson Professor of Applied Ethics and chairwoman of the Department of Science, Technology and Society. She is the author of a half-dozen books, recipient of several National Science Foundation grants, and as an interdisciplinary scholar has published more than 50 papers on a wide range of topics and in a variety of journals and edited volumes. She co-edits Ethics and Information Technology, a international journal published by Springer.

She teaches courses that emphasize the relationships among science, technology and society, ethics and communication skills.

Co-editor Wetmore is assistant professor at the Consortium for Science, Policy and Outcome and the School of Human Evolution and Social Change at Arizona State University. He worked with Johnson while he served as a National Science Foundation-funded postdoctoral researcher at U.Va.
