This course examines how practitioners of science and innovators of technology have engaged with society throughout the past and up to the present. The central question that will frame our examination of their activities is, “What is civic engagement?” Through readings and research, we will examine how science and technology have influenced public policy and thus democracy itself. Students will take advantage of the close proximity of the Linda Hall Library to work with professionals at this unique repository of scientific and technological source material. Prerequisites: ANCHOR I, ANCHOR II. Co-requisites: DISC 300.
