Graduate and Undergraduate
This course aims to explore scientific-technical sites?places of research, production, teaching, testing, and disposal. Some may be historical (such as disused Cold War relics) others in current use. How are these places shaped by the work that goes in them, how do the sites, in return, condition the work? Our sources will be a mix of site visits, texts (e.g. historical, ethnographic) and films (documentary). Each student will produce both a paper and a short cell-phone filmed video (no experience, we will teach all you need). Open to undergraduates and graduates.
