Trevor Pinch

A sociologist, Professor Trevor Pinch’s research focuses on three areas: the sociology of technology and how users engage with technology; studies on sound and how sonic technologies and listening cultures develop; and general issues in the sociology of science and technology.

Pinch is studying the circuit bending community — those involved in the creative customization of circuits to make music. He’s also exploring how on-line rcommendation systems work.

The editor of the Oxford Handbook of Sound Studies, Pinch also broadcasts a weekly radio show, “Webwatch” airing in Paris.
