Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

The aim of this lecture is to give students an overview of the basic questions and key issues at the core of the study of the relations of science, technology and society. Throughout the lecture you will be introduced to important approaches and concepts that can be used to address these questions/issues.
We will start by introducing 4 empirical cases which should give us a first feeling for the multifacetedness and the complexities of issues at stake when trying to understand the interactions of science, technology and society. They will accompany us through the lecture and discussion class and serve as shared reference points. The other core classes will also use these cases.

Art der Leistungskontrolle und erlaubte Hilfsmittel

The final grade will be based on the written exam of two hours at the end of the term. Learning materials for the exam are the oral lectures given, the pdfs of the slides available on the e-learning platform as well as the texts you had to read. So even if you only take the lecture class and not together with the discussion class, you have to do the reading for the exam!
