This is a 1-credit S/U graduate course in history of science, accompanying the CSTMS Colloquium. The meetings consist of invited lectures by leading researchers in the field of history of science and science studies, followed by an extended session of questions and answers (the calendar will be available on the CSTMS website in August: http://cstms.berkeley.edu). Additionally, students will meet the speakers in informal roundtable discussions ("master classes"). The course will bring you up to the research front in these areas, facilitating interactions with faculty and graduate students from across campus who share an interest in the social dimension of science and technology. Attendance is compulsory.
