Day & Time: 
MWF 11-12

This course is designed for students who wish to write their 101 paper on topics related to the history of science. We will spend the first few weeks of the course looking at the ways that different types of cultural artifacts (such as works of fiction) can be used to gain an understanding of the relationship between science and society. We will also work on developing the students' individual research topics and finding appropriate source materials. The bulk of the work in this course will be directed towards the production of the senior thesis, and the latter part of the semester will be devoted to one-on-one or small-group meetings.
