Research Areas

Researchers in Social & Humanistic Studies of Science ask questions about how people use and view science.

When we use information terminology in scientific discourse — referring to networks, translations, and redundancies — what do we really mean? What can science teach us about sexuality? Are these concepts actually useful? Researchers examine how we can make meaningful, positive changes in modern research ethics. In making such changes, who should be in charge? Why?

Faculty working in this area articulate and appreciate the many nuances in these questions while attempting to address these complicated issues and more.
