STS 2016 - Technology & Society

Since the Enlightenment, Western Culture has looked to technology as the key to social progress. In recent years, such optimism has fallen on hard times. This is an interdisciplinary course; it draws on history, literature, film, philosophy, and sociology in order to evaluate and explain the changing relationship between society & technology. specifically, we explore this relationship as: 1) systematization & standardization; 2) technology as solution to social problems; 3) technology as a social problem. This course serves as an introduction to Science & Technology Studies.

Prerequisite(s): Sophomore standing. Satisfies Social Science core. Course generally offered 1st semester.
