Science & Technology

From the English Department: 

The boundaries of "Science and Technology" stretch over several contiguous fields of inquiry, mapping disputed territories across the nature/culture, human/machine, realist/ constructivist divide. These courses range from histories of the scientific revolution and the mechanization of industrial labor in the eighteenth century to transformations of the American ecological and cultural landscape in the nineteenth, from post-War cybernetics and fictions of humanoid hybrids to representations of sexual and racial difference in contemporary popular science. Our discussions can draw on interpretive traditions derived from the social, technical, natural, or human sciences, especially literary studies.
