    Contested Boundaries: The String Theory Debates and Ideologies of Science.Sophie Ritson & Kristian Camilleri - 2015 - Perspectives on Science 23 (2):192-227.
    . Over the last three decades, physicists have engaged in, sometimes heated, debates about relative merits and prospects of string theory as a viable research program and even about its status as a science. The aim of this paper is to provide a deeper understanding of this controversy as a particular form of boundary discourse. Drawing on the sociological work of Thomas Gieryn and Lawrence Prelli, we bring to light the way in which protagonists appeal to, and rhetorically construct, different (...)

    Creativity and modelling the measurement process of the Higgs self-coupling at the LHC and HL-LHC.Sophie Ritson - 2021 - Synthese 199 (5-6):11887-11911.
    This paper provides an account of the nature of creativity in high-energy physics experiments through an integrated historical and philosophical study of the current and planned attempts to measure the self-coupling of the Higgs boson by two experimental collaborations at the Large Hadron Collider and the planned High Luminosity Large Hadron Collider. A notion of creativity is first identified broadly as an increase in the epistemic value of a measurement outcome from an unexpected transformation, and narrowly as a condition for (...)
