Perspectives on Science, Engineering and Mathematics

How has the creation of scientific and technological knowledge shaped society, and how has society shaped how scientists and engineers interact with and understand the world? In HIST 363, you will explore the multifaceted and complex relationship between practitioners of science and technology and the broader social, cultural, and political structures in which they exist. From the religious motivations behind space exploration to the continued impact of scientific racism and discriminatory practices in medicine, this course will cultivate your critical thinking and research skills as we examine key themes in the history of science and technology.
