STS 186: Innovation and Entrepreneurship: A Triple Helix of University Industry Government Interactions

This seminar examines the origins, growth and risks of Knowledge-based ecosystems. Is Silicon Valley sustainable and replicable? Where is 1960's Boston Route 128 innovation hub today? Are the Golden Triangle (Oxford, Cambridge, London) Moscow's Skolkovo; North Carolina's Research Triangle; France's Sophia Antipolis and other wannabe Silicon Landscapes viable? What is the role of Civil Society, gender balance and diversity, the arts and sciences: natural and social in innovation policy and practice? Innovation in innovation is the invention of organizational formats that facilitate product, process and social innovation. Start-ups and spin-offs, the Entrepreneurial University and Public Venture Capital and have been innovation drivers but are they sufficient? Can debt funded R&D sustain innovation? We will study the Stanford Innovation System and publish our results.

STS 200D: Top Ten Textnologies

This course will explore in detail ten of the most successful and long-lived technologies of human communication over the course of ten weeks. We'll examine the Rosetta Stone, Crazy Horse Mountain, the Voynich Manuscript, Banksy's Graffiti, Jackson Pollock's Lucifer, The London Illustrated News, Rihanna's `Work', the IPad, GoogleVR, and a nickel. We shall create biographies of these textual objects to better understand their effectiveness, the intentionality behind their creation and production, their affordances and functionality in the real world. Students will learn to describe and evaluate the major physical attributes and concepts that essentially underpin all forms of human communication. They'll then use this knowledge to replicate, augment, and reform current and historical text technologies.
