STS 301

Technology and Culture

This course surves as an introduction to the study of technology. Some of the material is historical, but it is not a survey of the history of technology. Rather, it is about the social and cultural place of technology in the modern world from industrialization to the internet. It's a two-way street: we make `the things' and then `the things' make us. Socially and culturally we `co-evolve' with the technological complexes of which we are a part.
