Researching the Cultures of Arts, Science and Technology
Full course description
This course focuses on teaching students how to analyze the arts in their relationship with science and technology. Notwithstanding persistent claims to aesthetic autonomy, this module shows how the arts have proven to be powerful forces that shape and are shaped by surrounding socio-technical, scientific and cultural contexts. It offers students concepts, theories, and methods to unravel the cultural position and practices of the arts by focusing on the confluence of the arts and sciences in everyday practices of "self-fashioning", i.e. the performance of specific identities on (semi-) public fora.
This course teaches students - how to analyse the arts in their relationship with science and technology - discourse, narrative and rhetorical analysis
