Primary Instructor:

This class supplements the mini-course, “Pills, Politics, and the Public Good: Ethical Crossroads in the Pharmaceutical Industry.” It is intended for students who wish to delve more deeply into issues presented in that course through small group discussion and research projects supervised by the instructor. This is a class for people with initiative, independence, and a taste for adventure.

Students in the research seminar will also serve as discussion leaders for sessions in the mini-course, work with the instructor on aspects of course planning, and present their research projects to the larger class.

Sessions will include whole class meetings, individual research consultations, some “field trips,” and the chance to meet with guest speakers in a small group setting.

There will be an emphasis on learning how to use fieldwork, informants, Internet-based investigation, and other resources to explore questions in depth. Thus, a love of “following leads” will also be essential.
