Science, Technology and Innovation Studies
Science and technology pervade all aspects of modern life. Think of the impact of vaccines, mobile phones, jet travel or the internet on how we interact with one another and understand own place in society.
How have theories of natural selection, advances in quantum physics or new medical theories and technologies changed the way we see ourselves? How have the politics of climate change influenced the science of climate change?
Scholars in Science, Technology and Innovation Studies tackle all of these issues. We aim to answer the big questions around how societies both influence and are influenced by science, medicine and technology.
