The STS Circle at Harvard is a weekly colloquium series fostering interdisciplinary conversations about contemporary issues in science and technology that are relevant to people in fields such as anthropology, history, history of science, sociology, STS, law, government, public policy, the natural sciences, engineering, and medicine. The series aims to engage both scholars and practitioners interested in the nature of knowledge and the role of expertise in modern societies. It brings together social scientists and humanists who are working at the intersections of science, politics, and public policy, as well as those in the sciences, engineering, and design who have a serious interest in exploring these areas with representatives of other disciplines.
There has been growing interest at Harvard in more systematic discussions related to science, technology and society. More and more dissertation writers and recent graduates find themselves working on exciting topics that intersect with science and technology at the frontiers of their home disciplines. They are asking questions that often require new analytic tools that are not offered by the traditional disciplines. In an effort to meet their needs, the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences now offers a secondary field in STS. Secondary field students present their research in the STS Circle as the culmination of their studies in the field.
All meetings take place on Mondays, from 12:15 to 2:00 p.m., at 124 Mt. Auburn Street, Suite 100, Room 106, unless otherwise noted. Those wishing to attend a meeting, please RSVP to email@example.com by Thursday at noon the week before.
