STS.007 Technology in History (MIT) STS.007 Technology in History (MIT)

Description

Today many people assume that technological change is the major factor in historical change and that it tends to lead to historical progress. This class turns these assumptions into a question—what is the role of technology in history?—by focusing on four key historical transitions: the human revolution (the emergence of humans as a history-making species), the Neolithic Revolution (the emergence of agriculture-based civilizations); the great leap in productivity (also known as the industrial revolution), and the great acceleration that has come with the rise of human empire on the planet. These topics are studied through a mix of textbook reading (David Christian's "Maps of Time"), supplementary readings (ranging from Auel, "The Clan of the Cave Bear" to Hersey, "Hiroshima"), i Today many people assume that technological change is the major factor in historical change and that it tends to lead to historical progress.

Prehistoric Canoe

Description

Several blind children and their teacher are sitting in the prehistoric dug out canoe. The canoe was discovered in the River Wear at South Hylton in 1888. Photograph taken at Sunderland Museum and Art Gallery. ?To them, their fingers are eyes? From 1913, John Alfred Charlton Deas, a former curator at Sunderland Museum, organised several handling sessions for the blind, first offering an invitation to the children from the Sunderland Council Blind School, to handle a few of the collections at Sunderland Museum, which was ?eagerly accepted?.
