Graduate Certificate Program in Science and Technology Policy. The course is an introduction to the social science of science -- which commonly goes under the labels science, technology and society (STS) or science and technology studies (also, STS).
Of course, I have many ideas about what I want to include (too much in fact, as I am sure my students can attest). I have also checked out the syllabus archive at the Science and Democracy Network and the syllabus archive at 4S, both wonderful resources. A core text will be Sismondo 2010 -- An Introduction to Science and Technology Studies (2nd edition).
With this post I am inviting readers to recommend what they think should be on such a syllabus. I welcome input from STS specialists as well as amateurs. What readings -- books, articles, essays, whatever -- are core to the social science of science?
