Present and previous positions
Hans Glimell is since 1998 professor of Science and Technology Studies and Director of the STS Unit, Department of Sociology, University of Göteborg, Sweden. Previously, he served as an Associate professor at the Department of Technology and Social Change at Linköping University in the years 1986-1995, whereas earlier positions included being a research fellow at the Centre for Working Life Research (Stockholm) and at Roskilde University (Denmark), as well as appointments as a civil servant within the Government Administration in Stockholm during 1976-1984. Most recently Glimell participated in an international research group at the Centre for Interdisciplinary Research (ZIF), the University of Bielefeld. He has also in the last years served as a high-level expert for The European Commission in preparing its Communication on nanotechnology, and as an advisor for the Norwegian Research Council in outlining a national initiative on the converging technologies (i.e. bio-nano-cogno). Research interests: Exploiting a dual background in organisation theory and the sociology or contemporary history of science and innovation, the bulk of Glimell’s scholarly work has concerned institutionalist vis-à-vis performative interpretations of science and technology; science policy regimes; distributed modes of knowledge production; the appropriation of ethnography within STS; the history and politics of scientific management and the work sciences; the sociology of technology-in-use; participatory information system design; the rhetorics, cultures and research practices of nanotechnology.

Current projects
1. Contributions to the documentation from ”Science in the context of application” (an international project hosted by the Centre for Interdisciplinary Research, ZIF, University of Bielefeld, 2006-08). (a)”Widening the Scope of Institutions: Science in Interaction” (book anthology in-process; co-editorship with Werner Rammert); (b) (with Torsten Wilholt) ”Conditions of Science: The Three-Way Tension of Freedom, Accountability and Utility” (book chapter).
2. The computer reaching out. (presently in-process: ”Escaping the Cartesian Legacy – A cogno-institutional mapping of the genesis of a transnational social computing society” (book chapter).
3. The policy and research cultures of nanotechnology.
4. New regimes and technologies of city securitization.
