Abstract

This paper examines the use of language and metaphor in the reception of recombinant DNA in the USA between 1973 and 1988. The Archives of Stanford University are used to show how changing images of production were conveyed, and how academic-industrial policies were shaped, in a rapidly advancing field of biotechnology.
