Meetings

The Center for Science, Technology, and Society (CSTS) provides opportunities for humanists, scientists (social, behavioral, and natural), and engineers to collaborate on innovative research that addresses how science and technology shape, and are shaped by, our society, culture, politics, and the environment.

 

Our center has two Zoom meetings a month and everyone is invited to attend our meetings.
If you are interested in attending please email Debrina Weber at dgwcgn@umsystem.edu and she will provide you with the Zoom information.
