Together with Andrew Webster (University of York, England), I have edited a book. It is both a celebration of the Health, Technology and Society series (published by Palgrave Macmillan) that we have jointly edited since 2006. In this compilation, we aim to capture examples of the excellent scholarship that the series produced and to reflect on how the field has developed over the past 15 years.
The volume draws on twenty-two books published in the series. It is organized around five themes: Innovation, Responsibility, Locus of Care, Knowledge Production, and Regulation and Governance. Structured in this way, the book gives the reader a concise but nonetheless rich guide to the core issues and debates within the field.
Complementing these narratives, the original authors have provided new reflection pieces on their texts and on their current work. This book not only looks back but also looks forward to emerging issues at the intersection of health, technology, and society. It presents a range of expertise in a novel way that is both timely and accessible for students and others new to the field.
