(Ir)Responsible Science and Engineering

(Ir)Responsible Science and Engineering

What does (ir)responsible science and engineering practice actually look like? Beginning with a very short introduction to frameworks for Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI), this course will consider evocative examples of societally-impactful science and/or engineering, including geoengineering and genome editing. Each week, an assigned participant or expert guest speaker will submit a specific case -- local or global -- for evaluation by the class. This course is suitable for undergraduate students in the humanities and social sciences, as well as in science, technology, and medicine.
