Science & Society

Fall 2019

Taught By: Nicolas Langlitz

Section: A

CRN: 7200

Credits: 3

The sciences have served as a motor of modernization. They have both addressed and created social problems – and their status in our societies is itself a site of intense problematization. This course equips students with the conceptual and methodological toolkit necessary to study the social construction of science and the scientific construction of society. As a cornerstone of the Science & Society track, the course provides a more general introduction to anthropological engagements with the sciences. But every year it also explores a particular topic. This year, we will ask: How do the sciences study and relate to morality?
