From the outset, Cultural Anthropology has published articles engaging with science and technology. For example, an early essay of Michael M.J. Fischer's, "Scientific Dialogue and Critical Hermeneutics" (1988). The essay by Emily Martin, "The Ethnography of Natural Selection in the 1990s" and David Hess' comments capture the critical import of these topics (1994). Also available is a special issue devoted to these intersections, introduced by Daniel A. Segal's "Editor's Note: On Anthropology and/in/of Science." (2001). See also Gary Lee Downey, Joseph Dumit, and Sarah Williams' essay, "Cyborg Anthropology" (1995).
