41st Annual Humanities and Technology Association Conference
We are happy to announce the 2019 annual Humanities and Technology Association Conference.
Nov 7-9, 2019
The main theme for this year’s conference is "Technologies of the Everyday". Topics could include: the technological design of everyday life; the works of thinkers like Lewis Mumford and Langdon Winner on the way technologies shape our forms of life in democratic or authoritarian ways; the rise of surveillance capitalism, such as detailed in the recent work of Shoshana Zuboff; the concept and role of “maintenance” in science and technology; the digital transformation of communication; algorithms in everyday life; the social, ethical, or existential significance of “smart” devices, houses, cities, ubiquitous computing and ambient intelligence; the ramifications of artificial intelligence for human work, and the prospect of a “jobless future”. This list is, of course, not exhaustive.
Call for Papers deadline August 15, 2019.
