5th Social Research Conference January 16-18, 1997
This conference was devoted to the thesis that technology is not separate and apart from the rest of our culture nor possessing a life of its own. And as long as we fail to acknowledge this fact, we endow technologies with agency and autonomy that have profound, often unintended, moral and political consequences.
This conference is funded by grants from The Engineering Foundation, The Howard Gilman Foundation, Interval Research Corporation and and The Rockefeller Foundation
