Calderwood Seminar in Public Writing: Science Studies in the World|
This Calderwood Seminar in Public Writing will give students practice writing about science, technology, and medical studies for general audiences. It will also function as a capstone experience for SISP majors: students will have a chance to reflect on the methodologies and theories they have learned during their time in the program, while also using those methodologies and theories to analyze issues and texts in our world today. Students will work collaboratively, editing each other's work, and significant class time will be spent workshopping student writing. The aim will be to produce publishable pieces of cultural analysis for the popular press.
