The Department of Science, Technology and Society (STS) at York University focuses on four intersecting lines of research:

  • Social analysis of biomedical innovations, life and health 
  • Education and public engagement with science and technology 
  • History, philosophy, and sociology of science, and
  • Policy, political economy and governance of science and technology

These lines of research intersect in various projects that are supported by Canadian Tri-Council funding, as well as international collaborations.

For interest in any of these lines of research please contact STS Department Chair (Vera Pavri -, the Chair of the STS Research Committee (Conor Douglas -, or specific faculty.
