STS-UY 3214 Science & Feminism

4 Credits
This course will introduce students to feminist perspectives from the field of Science & Technology Studies (STS). Scholars from anthropology, sociology, history, and philosophy of science are studied to gain insight on how gender and race affect the practice of science and how we come to think about facts, progress, modernity, and our technological and scientific worlds. Students are expected to become familiar with the basic theories, concepts, and questions of STS and will learn to apply critical feminist theory to analyze the day-to-day practice of science.

Prerequisite(s): Completion of EXPOS-UA 1  or EXPOS-UA 4 .
Note: Satisfies a humanities and social sciences elective.
