Committed to open, creative and political thinking, the Science and Technology Studies Unit (SATSU) explores the implications of the scientific and technological transformations that shape our lives.
With specialisms ranging across medical, genetic and health technologies through to data, metrics and media, the unit explores the context, history and future of innovation and change. Situated in the Department of Sociology, SATSU draws together members from across the University of York, to collaborate, think and develop ideas and insights into some of the biggest questions, issues and developments shaping the world today.
We have a number of cross-cutting interdisciplinary themes that guide our work and allow us to respond to particular challenges and questions that we think are most pressing. Information about our current themes and activities can be found below.
