Schedule Changes for Spring 2014
A second science class has been added to the schedule. Students who need to fulfill the science requirement or need general studies credit should consider this class.
RS 201 I -- Science, Technology and Societal Impact
Thursday, 1-3:50 p.m., Room 215F
Instructor: Dr. Ellen Jorgensen
This course explores the ramifications of the latest scientific discoveries and technological breakthroughs. How will they affect our lives and the planet? What social, moral and ethical questions have inspired artists to use them in their work? Each class will focus on a different scientific discipline such as genetic engineering, cognitive neuroscience, tissue engineering, synthetic biology, and personal genomics. An explanation of the science will be followed by a discussion examining the utopic/dystopic myths surrounding these technologies, fact vs. hype, and what questions should be raised as we implement them. Guest artists and their work will be featured along with scientists and ethicists. Dr. Jorgensen is the president and co-founder of Genspace where she has created biology and biotechnology workshops for the general community. She teaches participants with a diverse variety of backgrounds including the artistic community. She has also taught science to art students at The School of Visual Arts.
