STS 4951

Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2015-2016.

Explores how the human and social sciences have provided the knowledge and categories we use to make sense of human beings and their behavior. Looking across a range of disciplines-including sociology, anthropology, psychiatry, psychology, psychoanalysis, and economics-we will look at how human beings have become objects of scientific investigation. We will focus on how culture, politics, and the professional environment impact the human sciences and how the use of rhetoric constitutes academic discourse. We will also focus on the social scientific construction of selves, sex, and gender.
