ANTH 305 - Techno-Science in Society (MC)

Critically examines techno-science as a transnational social-cultural phenomenon. The term “techno-science” refers to the fusion of science and technology under modern global capitalism. Using the tools of anthropology, this course explores how techno-science is embedded in social-cultural, political and economic systems and processes. Case studies drawn from the Global North and South show how the context in which techno-science is produced and consumed matters. They reveal how critical examination of different sciences and scientists teaches us as much about the social world as it does about the natural one, and challenge the divide between the two and demonstrate how techno-science is a transnational phenomenon, in which ideas, objects, methods and practices change as they travel.
