Emergent technologies & research

The Handbook of Emergent Technologies in Social Research, edited by BC Professor of Sociology Sharlene Nagy Hesse-Biber, has been published by Oxford University Press. Hesse-Biber, director of Women’s & Gender Studies Program at BC, also contributed the essay “Emergent Technologies in Social Research: Pushing against the Boundaries of Research Praxis.”
The Handbook has been called an indispensable guide for social researchers looking to incorporate emerging technologies into their methods and practice. According to the publisher, The Handbook is “not only an authoritative view of cutting-edge technologies and their applications, but [it also]
examines the costs and benefits of utilizing new technologies on the research process, the potential misuse of these techniques for methods practices, and the ethical and moral dimensions of emergent technologies, especially with regard to issues of surveillance and privacy.”
