About this event
Founded in 2005, the Technology, Knowledge & Society Research Network is brought together by a shared interest in the complex and subtle relationships between technology, knowledge, and society. The perspectives of our members range from big picture analyses that address global and universal concerns to detailed case studies that speak of localized applications of technology. We aim to traverse a broad terrain, sometimes technically and other times socially oriented, sometimes theoretical and other times practical in their perspective, and sometimes reflecting dispassionate analysis while at other times suggesting interested strategies for action. Our aim is to build an epistemic community where we can make linkages across disciplinary, geographic, and cultural boundaries.
The Nineteenth International Conference on Technology, Knowledge, and Society calls for research addressing the following annual themes and special focus:
2022 Special Focus: Whose Intelligence? The Corporeality of Thinking Machines
Theme 1: Histories of Technology
Theme 2: Knowledge Makers
Theme 3: Social Realities
