Our Publication Series

The Learning Through Research series contains texts by students, documenting processes as well as methods, meetings and engagment within student research. At the Chair of Technoscience Studies we are aiming for imparting scientific methods not only in theory but also in practice. All papers by students published herein have been emerged in context of these research-oriented teaching activities.
