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 on the Rolla campus is:
9 a.m. – 6:30 p.m. Friday, Nov. 8 in the Havener Center Missouri and Ozark Rooms
9 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 9. in Toomey Hall 199.

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 impact our self-understanding, from education to social interaction to our moral responsibilities. The Humanities and Technology Review is the journal of the HTA Network.

This year’s 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 and professor emeritus of humanities, arts, and social sciences at the Colorado School of Mines. His talk, entitled “Engineering is Everywhere,” will focus on the ways design choice affects the human condition.

The event is open to the entire campus community and the general public, and the CSTS encourages
all faculty, staff and students to attend any and all presentations.

The conference website with a program of all speakers is humanitiesandtechnology2019.weebly.com.
