From iPhones to intelligence testing to immunizations, technology, science, and medicine permeate our lives in mundane and spectacular ways. In this course, students will learn to think critically about technology, science, and medicine by considering what they do to us, what we do to them, and how they shape the world around us. This course explores a variety of topics such as: how the relationship between culture and politics has influenced the design and use of technologies like bicycles, electrical systems, and water meters; how the transformation in the medical profession has shaped debates about inoculation and the AIDS epidemic; how the dynamics between science, technology, and politics have interacted in debates over climate change.
