Dr. Karen RaderWelcome to STS@VCU, where you can explore science, technology, and medicine in context.  Whether through classwork or by attending one of our lectures or other events, we hope to engage you in thinking more deeply about science and culture. Our interdisciplinary research, teaching, and program building creates bridges across VCU's two campuses, and fosters discussion about important contemporary and historical connections between science and society. Through the support of the College of Humanities and Sciences, and in partnership with other VCU academic units and local organizations, we strive to bring the academic discipline of Science and Technology Studies (STS) in dialogue with the VCU community's interests and concerns.  

I invite you to explore our website, and email me (or any of the faculty or staff) for more information about our programming and curricular initiatives.

Karen Rader
Director, STS@VCU
