SCTS 200 Addiction & Society 4.0 Credits

In this course, we will consider addiction through a science and technology studies (STS) lens. Such an approach investigates the social, political and economic factors that lead to the politicization of addiction, and also the strategies that government and nongovernment entities use to address the problem of addiction. We will pay particular attention to how the politics of addiction intersects with questions of race, class, and gender. Various iterations of this course will cover the same key concepts and frameworks, but the choice of case studies of different substances may vary. Topics to be covered could include, for example, opioid addiction, internet addiction, tobacco and cigarettes, and/or alcohol policy and cultures of recovery.
