ANTH 281 - Empires of Science


Semester Offered: Second Semester
Credits (Range): 3 hours
Attribute: 3SS, CD
This course examines the intersections of race, gender, culture, and sexuality with science and technology in colonial and post-colonial contexts. What are the social and historical dimensions of technoscientific encounters between the global North and the global South? Drawing on accounts by science studies scholars, post-colonial theorists, historians, and anthropologists, we analyze how the uneven flow of technoscientific experts, practices, objects, and knowledge transforms social relations, bodies, and selves.
