    Fighting Science with Science: Counter-Expertise Production in Anti-Shale Gas Mobilizations in France and PolandWissenschaft MIT Wissenschaft Bekämpfen: Produktion von Gegenexpertise Bei den Anti-Schiefergas-Mobilisierungen in Frankreich Und Polen.Roberto Cantoni - 2022 - NTM Zeitschrift für Geschichte der Wissenschaften, Technik und Medizin 30 (3):345-375.
    Between the second half of the 2000s and the first half of the 2010s, the prospect of shale gas extraction in Europe at first prompted fervent political support, then met with local and national opposition, and was finally rendered moot by a global collapse in the oil price. In the Europe-wide protests against shale gas and the main technique employed to extract it, hydraulic fracturing, counter-expertise played a crucial role. This kind of expertise is one of the main elements of (...)

    Between Protest and Counter-Expertise: User Knowledge, Activism, and the Making of Urban Cycling Networks in the Netherlands Since the 1970sZwischen Protest Und Gegenexpertise: Nutzererlebnis, Aktivismus Und Das Entstehen der Städtischen Radwegenetze in den Niederlanden Seit 1970.Henk-Jan Dekker - 2022 - NTM Zeitschrift für Geschichte der Wissenschaften, Technik und Medizin 30 (3):281-309.
    Around 1970, high numbers of traffic casualties among cyclists led to the creation of numerous local protest movements in the Netherlands. While activists employed protest strategies, their main interest lie in the way they exemplify a highly successful instance of “lay expertise”; the idea that users of a technology have a fundamentally different and valuable perspective on a technology than experts or system-builders. Specifically, cyclists claimed to be more knowledgeable about cycling conditions and safety than the state-employed engineers and traffic (...)

    Cruise ships are at the same time among the most popular and most controversial means of travel. Photos of oversized ships, passing through the historic center of Venice, have become iconic. This paper explores the background of the debate over cruise ships in Venice. Using research at the intersection of culture and technology, the history of technology, urban anthropology, and social movement theory, it sheds light on how the spatialization of the cruise industry through infrastructures affects Venice and the lagoon.

    In 1975, the death of dictator Francisco Franco opened the door to a turbulent period known as the “Spanish Transition.” In the wake of the 1973 oil crisis, national politics, political violence and social demands were interwoven with international shifts in science and technology and global debates on “energy transitions.” In close dialogue with foreign environmental groups, the anti-nuclear movement in Spain deployed a large repertoire of collective action; it ranged from pleasant activities to violent direct actions against nuclear technologies, (...)

    Radiation Risk in Cold War Mexico: Local and Global Networks.Ana Barahona - 2022 - NTM Zeitschrift für Geschichte der Wissenschaften, Technik und Medizin 30 (2):245-270.
    After WWII, global concerns about the uses of nuclear energy and radiation sources in agriculture, medicine, and industry brought about calls for radiation protection. At the beginning of the 1960s radiation protection involved the identification and measurement of all sources of radiation to which a population was exposed, and the evaluation and assessment of populations in terms of the biological hazard their exposure posed. Mexico was not an exception to this international trend. This paper goes back to the origins of (...)

    Health Physics (보건 물리학) in South Korea: Building a Research Community in a Post-Colonial Society, 1959–Early 1970s.John P. DiMoia - 2022 - NTM Zeitschrift für Geschichte der Wissenschaften, Technik und Medizin 30 (2):223-244.
    This paper traces the diverse contexts of radiation protection from liberation in post-1945 South Korea to its professionalization by the early 1970s, using the emerging field of health physics as the focus. The Korean nuclear center, AERI, started two affiliates, RRIA and RRIM in the early 1960s. In particular, RRIM emphasized the use of radiation within cancer research, especially the use of cobalt in treating patients. In this context, health physics initially took the form of “radiation medicine.”With the two institutes (...)

    The Global Experiment: How the International Atomic Energy Agency Proved Dosimetry to Be a Techno-Diplomatic Issue.Maria Rentetzi - 2022 - NTM Zeitschrift für Geschichte der Wissenschaften, Technik und Medizin 30 (2):167-195.
    This paper draws attention to the role of the IAEA in shaping radiation dosimetry practices, instrumentation, and standards in the late 1950s and 1960s. It traces the beginnings of the IAEA’s radiation dose intercomparison program which targeted all member states and involved the WHO so as to standardize dosimetry on a global level. To standardize dosimetric measurement methods, techniques, and instruments, however, one had to devise a method of comparing absorbed dose measurements in one laboratory with those performed in others (...)

    United States Atomic Energy Commission and UN agencies utilized techniques of power and negotiation to implement radiation exposure regulations. USAEC affiliated scientists’ expertise was cultivated while establishing a radiation protection regime based on classified experiments. World Health Organization leadership sought to manifest a human right to health, including a right to protection from radiation contamination. The careers of a few technical experts and interagency UN correspondence shows how American risk models of radiation regulation traveled and ultimately inhibited WHO attempts to (...)

    Ein orthopädisches Harnischinstrument zum Strecken krummer Beine aus der Dresdner Kunstkammer Kurfürst Augusts von Sachsen.Fabian Brenker - 2022 - NTM Zeitschrift für Geschichte der Wissenschaften, Technik und Medizin 30 (1):89-107.
    Zusammenfassung1894 erwarb das Germanische Nationalmuseum in Nürnberg ein Instrument, welches einem Beinharnisch ähnlich sieht. Über seitliche Gewinde konnten damit steife Beine gebeugt oder gestreckt werden. Dem Ätzdekor nach zu urteilen stammt es aus der Kunstkammer Kurfürst Augusts von Sachsen. Ein Vergleich mit zeitgenössischen Beinharnischen legt nahe, dass die Beinschiene bereits ursprünglich als orthopädisches Instrument hergestellt wurde. Sie komplettierte die Sammlung chirurgischer Instrumente des sächsischen Regenten in Dresden. Vermutlich war der Plattenharnisch in vielen Eigenschaften eine technologische Bedingung für derartige Orthesen und (...)

    This paper examines the institutional and social dimensions of cooperation in the Alliance of Science Organisations, the central corporatist stakeholder in German science policy, in the 1970s and 1980s, which were a crucial period for this committee. In doing so, this essay mainly focuses on the way science organizations interact with each other, as well as with national politics. The Federal Ministry of Research invited the Alliance to regular meetings and thereby fostered its involvement into political decision-making processes. Consequently, the (...)

    Patient history has enriched medical history since about the 1980s. But there are still research gaps in certain periods and themes, especially in topics related to the medical history of West Germany. This paper deals with the efforts of patients, lay persons, and medical advisors to enable diabetics to secure employment as civil servants. Attention will be payed to the fact that this success relied on the activities of mediators, who translated and conveyed the patients’ interests to society at large. (...)

    Recent scholarship on the social history of health and medicine in colonial India has moved beyond enclavist or hegemonic aspects of imperial medicine and has rather focused on the role of Indian intermediaries and the fractured nature of colonial hegemony. Drawing inspiration from this scholarship, the article highlights the significance of the Indian subordinates in the lock hospital system in the nineteenth century Madras Presidency.
