The interaction of IT & society: Estonian case

This doctoral thesis will map the growth and development of a large technical system focussed on ICTs in Soviet Estonia during the period of 1960–1990. I will try to determine the interaction of technological and societal factors in every field of ICTs’ usage (e.g. in science, in arts etc). Furthermore, the intertwining of different scales (e.g. the contextual factors of Soviet system, the mediating institutional filter or the actions of an inventor etc) will also be taken into account.
