New STS Courses for AY22/23


STS 156: The Future Of Global Systemic Risk
This course investigates the data, methods, and insights mobilized by key actors such as corporations, governments, and academics to assess systemic risk, create future scenarios, and generate predictions.This year, the course will focus on combined risks from the environmental, health, and emerging tech domains.


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.
