This course is an introduction to the interplay between science and society. Unsettling Science invites students to: ask big questions about science, interrupt preconceived ideas about what science is and who does it, and engage deeply with troubling social implications. By offering historical and contemporary perspectives, this course equips students with critical and methodological skills essential to exploring not only longstanding questions about the world but also urgent issues of our time. To do so, the course focuses on a series of fundamental questions that underpin the study of science and society from a variety of interdisciplinary perspectives.
