Missouri S&T’s Center for Science, Technology, and Society (CSTS) will host “Technologies of the Everyday,” the 41st annual meeting of the Humanities and Technology Association (HTA) Network.
The two-day event at S&T will be held:
- 9 a.m.-6:30 p.m. Friday, Nov. 8, in the Missouri and Ozark Rooms of the Havener Center
- 9 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 9, in Room 199 Toomey Hall.
The program includes keynote speaker Dr. Carl Mitcham and 24 presenters from universities across the U.S., including eight from Missouri S&T.
Mitcham is an international distinguished professor of philosophy and technology at Renmin University in Beijing and professor emeritus of humanities, arts and social sciences at the Colorado School of Mines. His talk, titled “Engineering is Everywhere,” will focus on the ways design choice affects the human condition. It will be held 5-6:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 8, in the Missouri Room of the Havener Center.
The HTA Network brings together scholars and researchers from across the humanities, STEM fields, industry, business and the military to reflect on the ways that technological developments affect our self-understanding, from education to social interaction to moral responsibilities. The Humanities and Technology Review is the journal of the HTA Network.
The event is open to the campus community and the general public. Get a schedule on the meeting website. For more information, please contact Dr. Patrick Gamez, assistant professor of arts, languages and philosophy and conference organizer, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
