The Chair of Technoscience Studies contributes in research and teaching to the study of technology and science from a philosophy of technology and environmental anthropology perspective.

We deal with scientific, technical and artistic practices in the production and reproduction of engineered environments. In our research, we use conceptual-historical and other philosophical methods as well as theory of action approaches. We understand our research as philosophical fieldwork.

In teaching, we are active in the study programmes World Heritage Studies (WHS), Environmental and Resource Management (ERM), Technology, Environment, Science and Society (TeSS), as well as in interdisciplinary studies.

We invite our students to reflect on technology-in-society-relations and discuss the possibilities of a critical and responsible approach to technical objects, processes and systems.
