3.2 Papers on nanotech

Chris Toumey is the author or co-author of more than seventy published papers on societal and cultural issues in nanotechnology.  The main themes of his work are: (1) contested accounts of the origin and history of nanotech: (2) democratizing nanotechnology, that is, the goal of nonexperts having active and contsructive roles in nanotech policy; (3) problems in the relation between a nanoscale object and a picture of the object; and (4) religious reactions to nanotechnology.

Below is the citation information for some of them.  The commentaries in Nature Nanotechnology are on a separate page.
