ANTH111 HM - Introduction to the Anthropology of Science and Technology


Credit(s): 3

Instructor(s): de Laet

Description: An introduction to science and technology as cultural phenomena and a hands-on initiation into anthropology. While applying basic anthropological methods in the academic environment, students gain an understanding of science and technology as a culturally, socially, and historically specific way of constructing knowledge. In other words, rather than taking for granted the ways in which we make knowledge, this course renders those ways of knowledge-making "strange."

HSA Course Area(s): Anthropology; Science, Technology, & Society
