This class challenges students to think about technology as a repertoire of skilled material practices communities mobilized differently in the past. In so doing it offers an iconoclastic introduction to the study of technology in history, rather than a conventional history of technology. With no ambition to provide a comprehensive narrative on a global scale, the class will draw on a wide range of rich human experiences with technology beyond Euro-Atlantic world. Through lectures and class discussion, stories of human (mis)adventures with technology are marshaled less to reveal surprising entanglements. Rather, they serve to guide the students through key new concepts, methods and debates in the field using the full of extent of the available scholarship in the field.

Informations pratiques

Course work & Readings
Students are required to read approximately 45-70 pages of required text in preparation for each class meeting. The discussion part of the class is seminar-style and your contributions are a vital. You will be expected to come to class prepared, i.e., having read the material carefully, and ready to raise and answer questions. Class readings are available on MOODLE (Supports d'enseignements en ligne de l'EHESS). 

Use of electornic devices in class
Use of laptop computers and other portable electronic devices in class is not permitted. Laptops and phones are efficient and convenient devices for note-taking, but they are also powerful and merciless distractions for everyone. Hand-writing encourages you to critically engage with lecture material and note those things that strike you as most significant, surprising, and/or challenging; this kind of engagement will come in handy as you work on your final projects. In fact, decisions you make while taking notes constitute first step in working on your final project.

Punctuality and absences
Arrive on time, silence phones, and minimize distraction for yourself and for others. Absences will be excuses for medical or observance reasons provided you email me in advance, unless it is a medical emergency.

Language
Language of the required readings is English or French. Discussions language is English and French with a degree of tolerance for mixing. Students can submit final project in either English or French.
