We’re reading an essay by Langdon Winner, who’s book The Whale and the Reactor is often read in Science and Technology Studies (STS) classes.
I already have the whole book in PDF so I’ve posted the full text on Carmen. You are only responsible for chapter 2, “Do Artifacts have Politics.”
Please be prepared to show reading marks and reading notes and I’ll check them off in class, giving you credit for that assignment.
Start to think about what you might write on for your first blog post. Think about what kinds of things you might have you’d like to write about this semester.
Thank you all for your contribution so far!
