Description:
*Science, Technology, Design* [Track M] These three fields form something of a continuum, from the pure to the applied, but while science and technology are often studied together as one field, design is not often included as a component of that continuum of practices. In part, this course will function as an introduction to science and technology studies, covering key authors and arguments. In part, it will complicate the narrative of that field a little by introducing the question of how science and technology relate to design practices. In short, if technology is applied science, can we think of design as applied technology? Such at least might be a starting point. The work of Gilbert Simondon and André Leroi-Gourhan and Bernard Stieger may help us expand the scope of science and technology studies a little to incorporate design as a fundamental conceptual category. Seniors/Juniors only. Juniors must obtain permission from instructor. [Track M]
