0.5 Credit

This course introduces anthropological approaches to technology and science. It questions strictly technical perspectives by raising issues of power, association, legitimacy and design. A central focus is the 'cyborg', a real and imagined meeting-place between the body and technology that has implications for biomedicine, biocommerce, and computers in the present and the future.
