WHAT IS TECHNOLOGY? CONFERENCE-EXPERIENCE

APRIL 11-13, 2019
UNIVERSITY OF OREGON PORTLAND

What is Technology? will examine interactions and transactions among (1) practical arts and tools, (2) techniques and processes, (3) moral knowledge and imagination, to navigate our everchanging media/life/universe. In a broad sense, technology can be understood as (4) methods of intelligent inquiry and problem-solving in all domains of human life.

This year marks the ten-year anniversary and ninth annual What is…?, bringing together natural and social scientists, scholars, government officials, industry professionals, artists and designers, as well as alumni, students, community organizations, and the public. We invite proposals for scholarly papers, panels, and installations on a wide variety of issues and topics.
