The German word for science literally means knowledge made. In line with this meaning, STS approaches science as practice. The interdisciplinary field asks empirically and methodologically how knowledge is made, how truths become truths, and how matters come to matter and to be matters of fact.

This course serves as basic introduction to STS, highlighting key political interventions, theoretical contributions, and the fields recent ascent into a burgeoning academic inter-discipline.
