If you have a prosthetic arm, are you a human or a machine? When are you human or/and a machine? The enterprise of sciences and engineering depend on the pursuit of the truth and objectivity, but that is rarely all there is to the question of scientific and technological practice as these are themselves human endeavors. What then does it mean to approach the work in STEM from a perspective of challenging the binary of human-machine, nature-culture, expert-novice, etc.? In this course, we will learn to ask to uncover the who, when, what, how and why of the human worlds of science and technology through the art of feminist storytelling that takes one beyond these binaries to tell stories of worlds that are otherwise.
