Thought questions for wk 7: Noble, Layton, Gieryn

Some questions for you to ponder in time for class this Thursday...

How do Noble and Layton *together* argue how the engineering profession evolved? What were the major signposts each used? What were the different historical steps? How has engineering as a "profession" evolved over time, as described by each?

How might the tool of "boundaries" be helpful in thinking through these histories?

See you on Thursday with your thinking caps on.
