The Chair in Science and Technology Studies, University College Freiburg, invites to the Summer 2018 Colloquium series in Science and Technology Studies, co-organized by Dr. Nicholas Buchanan and Prof. Dr. Veronika Lipphardt. Speakers at the colloquium will be Jenny Reardon, Susan Jones, Nancy Campbell, Anne Harrington and Sheila Jasanoff.
The interrelationships between society, the environment, and biology are becoming ever more complex and ever more important. Concepts such as disease, genes, ecologies, and biomedicine have taken on new meanings in politics, law, ethics, popular culture, and the sciences themselves.
Because navigating and understanding this changing landscape poses challenges that span academic disciplines, we invite you to join us at the Summer 2018 Colloquium series of the Chair in Science and Technology Studies, University College Freiburg, for lectures and discussions with world-renowned scholars in Science and Technology Studies, History of Science, and History of Medicine.
All lectures are free and open to the public and will be followed by discussion. All talks will take place in the University of Freiburg Library Veranstaltungssaal (1. OG), 16.00.
