Fall 2008 not offered
In this course we will investigate together several recent topics that have been important for scholars studying scientific work, including feminist science studies; differences between experimental, field, and theoretical science; career trajectories in science; connections between science and its various "publics"; the politics of scientific expertise; the globalization of science; and conceptual exchange between sciences and other discursive practices. The course presumes no prior knowledge of science studies scholarship.
This course emphasizes writing as a skill as well as a mechanism for exploring the subject matter of the course.
