STS.350 2004春季課程：科學與科技之社會研究(Social Study of Science and Technology, Spring 2004)
This course surveys canonical and recent theories and methods in science studies. We will organize our discussions around the concept of "reproduction," referring variously to:
Scientific reproduction (how results are replicated in lab, field, disciplinary contexts)
Social reproduction (how social knowledge and relations are regenerated over time)
Biological reproduction (how organic substance is managed in the genetic age)
Electronic reproduction (how information is reassembled in techniques of transcription, simulation, computation).
Examining intersections and disruptions of these genres of reproduction, we seek to map relations among our social, biological, and electronic lives.
