A year-long research methods seminar in Science and Technology Studies that trains doctoral students (and postdocs) in identifying, analyzing, and writing about significant issues at the intersection of science, technology, and public policy. Students are expected to deepen their knowledge of major STS analytic frameworks, present their own research, read and critique other students' writings, and prepare occasional short analytic pieces for online publication.
The seminar is open by permission of the instructor. Those interested in enrolling should email a short statement to the instructor describing their interest prior to the start of classes. Please note, this is one half of a yearlong course. Students enrolled in the fall section will automatically be enrolled in the spring section.
