STS Class

Short paper assignment

Due Feb 26th by 11pm, submitted as a comment on this post.

In an essay of no less than 900 and no more than 1500 words, tell me what value the theories we’ve learned about so far in class have for your understanding of present day technologies. Use specific examples from the class texts (at least 5) and specific examples from your own experience (at least 3).

Remember to leave an extra line of white space between your paragraphs so your paragraph breaks remain visible after you’ve uploaded your essay.  Cite your sources using in-line parenthetical citations. For example: (Latour, “Where are the Missing Masses?,” 21) or (Roberts, Killing the Black Body, 236) etc.
