GU4110: Histories of Science and Technology in East Asia | L. Li
East Asian Languages and Cultures
Undergraduate and Graduate Seminar
This course explores the life of scientific and technological artifacts in East Asia. We will examine everyday objects alongside core literature from Science and Technology and Society (STS) studies to raise new historical questions and methodological approaches. From clocks to paper, from pregnancy to immortality, we will take on a close reading of objects and ideas by directly engaging with the circumstances under which they were made.
