• Identify and account for select key questions and theoretical positions in the philosophy of science
• Account for relevant theoretical perspectives on technology with particular emphasis on how to use these concepts to understand relations between IT, the general BA subject area, and the broader context.
• Analyze and discuss a select issue exemplifying how IT and the broader context is interconnected (The issue may relate to e.g. political, ethical, philosophical, historical or societal issues, challenges or problems).

The objective of the course is to provide students with ways of articulating some of the fundamental assumptions underpinning core areas of the DMD programme and more broadly the field of information technologies.

The course will consist of a mix of general discussion of technology and a series of contemporary topics such as democratic design, feminist approaches to technology and science, surveillance and privacy, and values in design
