Keeping Technologies Out

Sociotechnical Imaginaries and the Formation of Austria’s Technopolitical Identity

(p.103) Five Keeping Technologies Out
Dreamscapes of Modernity

Ulrike Felt

University of Chicago Press

This chapter suggests that Austria's attempts to keep certain controversial technologies out of its territory were strongly tied to the creation and articulation of a specific national technopolitical identity as well as preferred ways of living. The chapter focuses on the cases of nuclear power and agricultural biotechnologies. It also explores how the national sociotechnical imaginary manifested in these cases has shaped Austria's approach to other emerging technologies, such as nanotechnologies.

Keywords:   sociotechnical imaginary, nuclear power, biotechnology, nanotechnology, memory, Austria
