    Managing Prospect Affiliation and Rapport in Real-Life Sales Encounters.Trevor Pinch, Paul Drew & Colin Clark - 2003 - Discourse Studies 5 (1):5-31.
    A B S T R A C T Detailed examination of audio recordings of business-to-business `field-sales' encounters are used to report one way in which salespeople elicit verbal expressions of affiliation from their prospective customers — by reciprocating second assessments which affiliate with, trade off and build on prospects' own assessments. This article outlines the prototypical features of these junctures of assessment-affiliation and describes how salespeople can mobilize such assessments to build extended sequences of `rapport' that take the form of (...)

    Comment on “Nudges and Cultural Variance”.Trevor Pinch - 2010 - Knowledge, Technology & Policy 23 (3):487-490.
    In this brief commentary, I suggest Selinger and Whyte are essentially correct in their criticism of the Nudge approach advocated by Thaler and Sunstein. I use some examples from road behavior and traffic planning to amplify the criticism that the simple behavioral economics approach fails to take account of the embedding of humans and technology in the wider social and cultural context.

    From Technology Studies to Sound Studies.Trevor Pinch - 2019 - Epistemology and Philosophy of Science 56 (3):123-137.
    In this paper I put in dialogue two areas of scholarship: Technology Studies and Sound Studies. Within Technology Studies I discuss the influential social construction of technology approach and illustrate it with the history of the moog electronic music synthesizer, the first commercial music synthesizer. I stress the role of standardization of keyboards and the key role played by users in the development of this technology. I examine certain iconic sounds that the moog synthesizer produces and discuss the stabilization of (...)

    Tacit Knowledge and Realism and Constructivism in the Writings of Harry Collins.Trevor Pinch - 2013 - Philosophia Scientiae 17 (3):41-54.
    Dans cet article, j’examine les écrits influents de Harry Collins consacrés à la connaissance tacite. Je me penche en particulier sur son récent livre, Tacit and Explicit Knowledge [Collins 2010] ou TEK, qui est sans doute l’exposé le plus complet et le plus systématique de la manière dont Collins conçoit la connaissance tacite. Tout en examinant la connaissance tacite telle qu’elle est développée dans cette contribution, je dégage, au sein des contributions majeures de Collins à la sociologie de la connaissance (...)

  45. Turn, Turn, and Turn Again: The Woolgar Formula.Trevor Pinch - 1993 - Science, Technology and Human Values 18 (4):511-522.
    This response to a recent article in ST&HV by Woolgar investigates Woolgar's concept of analytic ambivalence. The response points out how this notion originates in a formula applied to social problems research and how this formula is used as the basis for Woolgar's critique of work in the social studies of technology. The response then goes on to show that Woolgar's own application of the formula of analytic ambivalence is formulaic and glosses over many of the interesting features of the (...)
