This course uses anthropological and sociological approaches to analyse the effects of technologies on human life. You will study the lived experience of technology in different cultural contexts, exploring such topics as biotechnologies, communications technologies, robotics, and energy policies. In this way, you will learn to examine the shifting boundaries between the human and non-human, and the natural and artificial. At the conclusion of the course, you will have developed an understanding of the assumptions about humanity that underpin central debates within the study of technology.
