Most major dilemmas that confront people and governments in contemporary societies demand significant engagement between science, technology and society. Current examples include climate change, stem cells, nuclear power, oil spills, genetically modified foods, genetic enhancement, biofuels, biobanks, geoengineering, cybersecurity, and computer privacy. Do you have a term paper, research project, or thesis on how science, technology and society have interacted around such issues, today or in the past, and the social, cultural or policy problems raised by those interactions?
If your answer is yes, enter our poster contest for a chance to win a modest cash prize or honorable mention, and a featured place on the website of the Program on Science, Technology and Society (http://www.hks.harvard.edu/sts). Posters will be judged by a panel of STS experts from Harvard, MIT, and Cornell.
