Remembering Trevor Pinch

Attila Bruni, Chris Hesselbein, Paolo Magaudda, Mariacristina Sciannamblo


Abstract: Like the many fortunate enough to cross his path, the STS Italia community and Tecnoscienza are particularly indebted with the sociologist of science and technology – and Moog synthesizer player – Trevor Pinch (1952-2021). Our journal gratefully remembers his human and intellectual generosity through the words of four researchers who encountered Trevor as a mentor, supervisor, colleague and source of inspiration for their life and work.

Keywords: Trevor Pinch; mentoring; The Electric Golem; sound studies; STS Italia.
