Hennebach Lecture: Scientists, Engineers and Politics: Perspectives from China and Germany

September 5, 2017 @ 3:30 pm - 5:30 pm

Presented by Liu Yongmou, Renmin University of China, and Alfred Nordmann, Technical University Darmstadt

Berthoud Hall 241

One of the most contentious issues in America today is the relationship between scientific and technological expertise and political power. On one side are those who think scientific knowledge should fundamentally inform politics and technical expertise should guide governmental action. On another are those who maintain that scientists and engineers are just another interest group whose influence in public affairs should be limited. The presentations by two leading science policy scholars from China and Germany will offer new perspectives on such debates by considering the roles played by technoscientific experts in two very different political regimes.
