BACKGROUND

Peter Stegmaier studied sociology, social psychology, law, and economics at the University of Munich and at Goldsmiths’ College in London.

Formerly, Peter was a researcher and lecturer at the Universities of Dortmund, Hagen and Düsseldorf, carrying out at the latter two the project ‘Law as a social practice—from everyday legal methods to a legal methodology for everyday work’ (2000–2004). After this, he worked as a lecturer and researcher in criminal and police sociology at the Ruhr University of Bochum, focusing especially on public security institutions (2004–2006). From 2007 to 2009 he held a post-doc position at the Centre for Society and Genomics, Radboud University Nijmegen. There, in the form of an institutional ethnography, he investigated how “society and genomics” research, education and dialogue activities (sometimes called ‘ELSA’ or ‘ELSI’ for ethical, legal, social aspects/implications) in the Netherlands and in the United Kingdom get conceptualized and organized, institutionalized and legitimized in everyday work—as science governance in action. Writing things up is still in progress though ...
