Instructor: Howard Segal
Time: Tuesday and Thurday, 11:00-12:15
Description: The course has three main purposes:
The course assumes no familiarity with the history of technology and welcomes the participation of students from non-technical and technical backgrounds alike. The course will examine the history of technology both “internally”–as tools and machines–and “externally”–as related to the societies that have produced them and upon which they in turn have had impact.
