Toward Nomadological Cyberinfrastructures
- Jeremy HunsingerAffiliated withCenter for Digital Discourse and Culture, Virginia Tech Email author
This article critically analyzes the cyberinfrastructure and e-science policy discourse in the knowledge society. As a work in critical infrastructure studies, I argue that the tendency of cyberinfrastructure and e-science to reify certain misunderstandings of science and knowledge as social and cultural processes misaligns the policy outputs with the policy practices. From this understanding, I argue that we need to consider the development of a nomadological cyberinfrastructure.
