Science and technology studies (STS) is an interdisciplinary field of research which questions the relations between culture, politics, society, and the establishment of scientific knowledge and technology. Starting with some seminal texts, the seminar will later focus on feminist science and technology studies and recent publications in the area. Apart from discussing the assigned readings and the theoretical work on STS, this intensive course will have a focus on practicing academic writing skills. Prior participation in at least one of the Philosophy of Cognitive Science courses is recommended. This is a 6 ECTs intensive Course. Passing requires attendance of the seminar Tuesday 10-12 and the supplementary seminar Wednesday 14-16.
