Some Papers I've Written

I don't usually publish papers I've written for school here on my website, but the following three papers were on my RPI website for a long time. Now that I've graduated from RPI and no longer maintain that site, I've republished those papers here:

[Another shortened version of this paper was presented at the 26th Annual Meeting of the Society for Social Studies of Science (4S) held in Milwaukee, Wisconsin on November 7-9, 2002. I presented my paper on November 8th in a panel entitled "Mediating Marginality: Technological Subcultures at the Intersections of Labor, Design, and Identity."

Also presenting on that panel were: Rayvon Fouche (RPI), Hector Postigo (RPI), and Seita Koike (Musashi Institute of Technology). Karin Ellison (University of Wisconsin-Madison) was the Chair.]
