Biography

James Stewart is a lecturer and research fellow at the University of Edinburgh in the Institute for Science, Technology and Innovation. He works in the field of technology studies, concentrating on the appropriation, consumption and use of new ICTs and the co-evolution of large scale systems of technology and culture. He has recently returned from 3 years as a Scientific Officer at the Institute for Prospective Technology Studies at the European Commission, in the Action on ICTs for Social Inclusion, with responsibility for the work on Employment, and contributing to work on social innovation and impact assessment of local ICT-enabled services.

He has a BEng in Electronics, and MSc and PhD in Science and Technology Studies. His research interests are focused on the appropriation and innovation done in technology, policy and practice as new technologies, in particular ICTs, are shaped to support the activities and relationships of particular domains of everyday life, industry or government.

His recent work has been on standardisation,interdisciplinary research, social network systems, the merging of virtual and physical space; China and EU innovation policy, future mobile and wireless systems, gender and technology . Other work includes cybercafes, digital inclusion, digital cities, developing Internet business, public space and ICTs,and managing innovative multimedia projects. His doctoral research was on social processes involved in how we engage, adopt (or not) and cope with new media and ICTs in our everyday lives at home and work. James is a commentator on the convergence of media, and on the future shape and use of mobile devices.

At the IPTS he led work on impact, development and implementation of ICTs for home carers, of digital games for social inclusion, and on online work exchanges. He commissioned and edited a series of report on online work, Time Banks and online volunteering.
