Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

In the reading seminar we will read and discuss key original work on core questions and concepts covered in the introductory lecture `Science,
Technology, Society (STS): Key-questions and concepts´.

The seminar has a two-fold aim:
On the one hand it’s aim is to deepen the understanding of the issues covered in the introductory lecture, give you the possibility to discuss and to get a first impression of the range of questions that STS poses and of how STS-authors have approached them.

On the other hand the course aims at learning how to work with and appropriate scientific texts. In every text we read, we will identify and discuss the core questions, concepts and hypotheses they pose and learn how they relate to each other in making an argument.
