Science Studies Research Group
Science Studies Research Group examines the relations between scientific and technical forms of knowledge and the social, philosophical, and historical contexts that make these specialized practices both possible for experts and meaningful for their many audiences. Interdisciplinary of necessity, the group reflexively seeks combinations of interpretive inquiry and rational analysis that not only link disparate forms of scientific investigation, but also make sense of their impacts in society, industry, government, popular culture and daily life. Several departments participate in Science Studies activities at CEU: History, Philosophy, Sociology/Social Anthropology, Cognitive Science, Environmental Studies, Gender Studies, and Medieval Studies. A general overview of Science Studies at CEU (including courses) and further afield may be found on our general page.
