Interpreting Technoscience: Explorations in Identity, Culture and Democracy–Fall 2009


CAS Resident Associate: Rayvon Fouché (History)

Traditionally, science and technology have had a national character, but with the growth of international, global, and transnational exchanges, scientific and technological interactions have transformed in the recent past.  This initiative will examine the ways technoscience–or the confluence of scientific practices and technological artifacts–influences and affects human identity, cultural knowledge, and democratic action.  This focus will explore historical, contemporary, and emerging interpretations of technoscience as a means to understanding connections between science, technology, and human existence.
