Human Technologies: Techniques and Practices from the Social Sciences
You are cordially invited to join us for an afternoon of discussions around the theme of ‘human technologies’. Human technologies are a significant social form in contemporary culture, and as such, deserving of attention from artists as well as scientists. On this occasion, we will consider recent and ongoing artistic and scholarly explorations of the following questions: How can we understand human technologies as a distinct form? How do human technologies rely on and create particular kinds of subjectivities? What roles are played by the human sciences in the creation and deployment of these technologies?
Tuesday 7 October 2008, at the Department of Theory & History of Psychology, Faculty of Behavioural Sciences, University of Groningen.
This event is part of the project human technologies.
