Blog Winners Announced

Last term recently arrived STS lecturer Jack Stilgoe launched a new course ‘Governing emerging technologies’ for UCL 3rd year undergraduates (HPSC3036). As well as the usual essay, the 24 students from STS and across UCL taking the cousre were asked to put together a course blog, in which they would explore issues to do with emerging technologies. Case studies and literatures were discussed in class, but the idea with the blog was that the students would dig into their own examples. Jack asked the creators of the best ones if they would agree to have theirs aired publicly and you can find the results on his blog.
