Bulk media: the social and political aspects of science and technology

The STS Priority Group have compiled a significant amount of multimedia from lectures and seminars.

Our team are leading discussion at the University of Nottingham about the social and political aspects of technology and science, including on controversial technologies and climate change.

We would like staff, students and members of the public, from whatever disciplines, to engage with these questions.

Below are a list of videos, audio files and slides from our interdisciplinary sessions. Please share these with your colleagues, friends or students, asking them to subscribe to our blog or sign-up to our mailing list for updates and opportunities.

Thank you.
