New STS Courses for AY22/23

STS 158: The Science and Politics of Apocalypse
This course examines how expectations surrounding the end of the world, and the role
that human beings might play in bringing it about, have transformed over the last two
centuries. After a brief look at traditional religious apocalypticism, we explore how
apocalypse came to be reconsidered as an entirely this-worldly phenomenon that falls
within human power to achieve and demands political attention.
