In this panel discussion, faculty from the UWC "How to think about sciences" will discuss how science studies can be an integrated endeavor, involving different reflective perspectives, such as history of science, sociology of science, cognitive science, gender studies, economy etc. All these perspectives can be used to understand the science. 

One focus will be how to make science studies relevant for contempary issues around science scepticism, e.g. whne scientific claims are contested as part of so-called climate scepticism.
