Credits: 4
Exploration of  the key role that science and technology play in the world, with particular attention to its intersection with gender and race.  Drawing primarily on feminist scholarship and cultural studies of science and technology, students will critically examine practices of science and technology and the way in which they shape and are shaped by larger political, cultural and social contexts. Students will explore key theoretical questions such as How science produces ideas about gender and race, how gender and race affect who has access to technology, and how do we create technologies that improve the lives of women and people of color?
