Hist Sci/Tech in Modern World

Course Description

This course examines science and technology in their cultural and social contexts since the Scientific Revolution and the ways in which scientific inquiries, achievements, and debates have shaped and continue to shape human culture (and vice versa). This course has two goals: first, to explore the ways in which science and technology have helped various societies make sense of, and manipulate, their worlds and themselves; and second, to appreciate how science and technology reflect their historical periods and contexts.
