New Genetics and Society
Adam Hedgecoe, Richard Tutton and Martyn Pickersgill
The interdisciplinary journal, New Genetics and Society, was first published in 1999 under the editorship of Peter Glasner and Harry Rothman. Since then it has gone on to play an important role in shaping and defining social scientific research agendas regarding genetics and genomics, and has generated further impact in related fields like the social studies of neuroscience, reproductive technologies, and stem cells. Under the new editors, Adam Hedgecoe and Richard Tutton, New Genetics and Society will continue to advance work in these areas, including social, legal, historical and ethical analysis of the biosciences more broadly. As such, it welcomes empirically robust and theoretically challenging research not only from social scientists, but also historians, lawyers, bioethicists and others working within the (bio)medical humanities.
New Genetics and Society will continue to welcome proposals for high-quality special issues; these can be sent to Clancy Pegg, the Journal Manager, using this email.
Martyn Pickersgill has joined the journal as its Book Reviews Editor, and in the future New Genetics and Society will include both symposium and essay reviews. To suggest a book for review, or to register interest as a reviewer, please contact Martyn.
