Critical Security Studies and Technology
This course provides an introduction to basic concepts and currents of ideas, contemporary problem formulations and various research approaches that are dominant in Critical Security Studies (CSS).
The course is focused on socio-technical perspectives where the interaction between people and technical systems is seen as intertwined with a variety of perspectives, norms and values that together form their own unique ontology.
Important areas that will be discussed are social constructivism and its links to technology and security, securitization, feminist and postcolonial perspectives, surveillance technology and contemporary security issues such as sustainable development, the environment and technological innovations.
The course will provide the student with tools for analyzing current issues in technology and security based on a critical theory.
