Bruno Latour describes the way that scientific and technical work is made invisible by its own success as 'black boxing'. In this course, students will look inside the 'black box' to examine how scientific knowledge is currently created, used, applied, shared, and arguably controlled by a range of social factors. Students in this course will observe scientists at work and draw on a range of theories, in particular Science and Technology Studies (STS) to examine science as a social enterprise.
