Memo3

Description

please do not paraphrase or copy others from the internet! single space! Memos will summarize the readings for the day and provide at least one question about the texts. They should be 1 page, singled spaced (12pt. font, times new roman). Please answer including this instruction: this course will narrowly focus on two questions. First, how do social processes underpin technological development? Second, how do technological artifacts help shape society? To address these questions, we will cover a range of substantive themes, including the politics of facial recognition software, pharmaceuticals, genetics, the synthesizer and food production. By the end of the course, students should be able to critically reflect on the technological world we live in by understanding that technologies are not objective artifacts. Rather, they are heavily influenced by social forces. Please read it then to write memo! for the memo please draw on the posted readings for week 3 (Wajcman, Introduction, Ch.2, Ch.4). 1. Wajcman, J.
