STS studies the ways social norms and structures affect the form of scientific knowledge and of technological processes. Conversely, the field also considers the ways scientific conceptions and technological implementations alter or reinforce the structures of their host societies.


Events related to STS topics are ongoing, and originate from various quadrants of campus! For example:

The Forum on Technology & Liberal Arts

Hanson Center for Inclusive STEM Education & Studies

Olmsted Workshops in Philosophy upcoming & archive
