Jan-Peter Voß does social and political research with a background in science and technology studies. A main interest lies with relations of science and politics in processes of collective ordering. A broader long-term project is the development of a constructionist sociology of governance, based in pragmatist and practice oriented social theory. The shaping of collective orders is studied as a co-production of different types of authority, mainly epistemic and political, but also aesthetic and religious.  Underlying this is a pragmatist theory of authority as generated in performative practices of representation. Key areas of empirical study are (a) emerging forms of governance related with discourses of sustainable development, (b) the making and performativity of knowledge about social life and governance, (c) innovation and translocal expansion of instrumental models of governance, politics and democracy, (d) methods of constructive technology assessment and transdisciplinary innovation.
