The importance of geography has received growing recognition within the field of Science and Technology Studies (STS). The production, travel, reception and impact of knowledge can all be located in a spatial context, that affects both its form and content. This course uses a discussion of selected literature to address topics such as the relations of global and local knowledge; flows of technology; agents and carriers of knowledge; structures like the laboratory and museum that create a spatial relation of knowledge, etc.
