ANTH 50.16 Anthropology of Science

As a form of social science inquiry, the anthropology of science examines the social, political and cultural worlds within which scientific theories and controversies emerge. Through readings of writings about varied fields such as neuroscience, genetics, microbiology and physics, this introductory course provides students with the tools to analyze scientific work as a form of meaningful social and cultural action. Specifically, we will examine how race, gender and ethnicity shape contemporary practices of science and technology, and how in turn, science and technology have come to shape contemporary ideas of identity and relatedness.

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
