Science Studies Unit
SCQF Level 8 (Year 1 Undergraduate)
This course looks at the way that the sciences have constructed ideas about people which have an impact on society. It does so by considering a number of historical and contemporary examples, as well as by providing a methodological framework through which to consider these examples. Topics covered include madness, sexuality, gender, reproductive technologies, the body, race, criminality, science and the law and the public understanding of science.
