From designing activism internet games to predicting the price of paper, Ivan Allen College faculty, research staff and students explore a wide range of social and humanistic issues. Many of them examine how society shapes and is shaped by science and technology.

The College is home to:

    • Distinguished historians and sociologists whose works characterize the development and impact of science and technology
    • Literary scholars and artists whose media are digital
