Purpose: The goal of this assignment is to allow students to explore in detail a key question related to technology and society. The assignment has both research and analytical requirements. Students will be expected to find detailed and intellectually sophisticated sources studies of their research chosen topic; they will also be expected to grapple with the main analytical and theoretical issues relevant to their topic. The first assignment – a detailed examination of one source – was intended to help with both of these components. It should be underlined that students are not expected to produce the “final word” on the main questions in their essays. Rather, the goal is for them to develop a strong analytical paper about technology and society.
