Transnational Comparison of Technology Regulation in the U.S. and Europe
SISP 310
Spring 2019 not offered

A key insight of the sociological study of science is that science and technology are social and cultural as well as scientific and technical things. This relativist philosophical stance has generated a robust research program into what science and technology are in social and cultural context. This course on the social and cultural study of science and technology will teach the theory and practice of transnational comparative research, drawing both on classical and new texts in the field, and on the professor's own experience studying technology in two different national contexts (the U.S. and Denmark).
