本課程有兩份主要作業,包括:

1.短論文(5頁),關於第1至6講的課程閱讀內容(在第7講提交) 論文應對閱讀資料中的觀點作出批判性評論。尋找主題-例如,非人類行動,表意活動的實驗室實踐,社會構造論評價-這與我們的課文交錯。提煉自己的觀點,說清楚你所選主題的科學社會研究的重要趨向和爭論。

2. 15-20頁的研究論文,利用課程材料討論社會中的科學一個案例。

可選的主題包括:

轉基因食品政治,複製技術,生物勘探,器官移植,在綫團體或抽樣。



There are two major assignments in this course. They include:

1. Short paper (5 pages) on course readings up through lecture 6 (due on lecture 7)

This paper should offer a critical engagement with arguments offered in the readings. Look for themes - e.g. nonhuman agency, laboratory practice as semiotic activity, critiques of social constructionism - that cross-cut the texts we've encountered. Develop an argument of your own that makes sense of what you see as important tendencies and debates in social studies of science around your chosen theme.

2. A 15-20 page research paper using course materials to discuss a case study of science in society.

Possible topics might include:

Politics of genetically modified food, reproductive technologies, bioprospecting, organ transplant, online communities, or sampling.
