Neo-conservatives and the Politicization of Science and Technology in Canada




This project documents and analyzes the politicization of science and technology in Canada as it has been carried out by a variety of conservative governmental and non-governmental actors, across a range of contemporary issues and domains. The project attempts to disaggregate conservative approaches to questions of science and technology in order to demonstrate the diversity on these questions within the conservative movement in Canada, to identify the significance of science and technology within contemporary conservative ideology, and to draw lessons from this experience for the politics of science and technology more broadly. This project is funded by the Canada Research Chair in Technology and Citizenship.
