Course summary

Contemporary society becomes increasingly technological and digitalized, which results in fundamental shifts in social structure, social practices, and cultural identities. In recent decades, attention of many social scientists has been focused on the conditions of production of scientific facts and technological artifacts, as well as the processes of their implementation in public life. Social studies of science and technology have greatly deepened contemporary knowledge about the social role of science and unexpected consequences of work of scientists and engineers. The course "Science, Technology and Society" is aimed at expansion of students' knowledge of science and invention as social practices, as well as its planned and unintended consequences.
