CFP: Conference: Human-Technology Relations. 15.02.18
International Conference:
Human-Technology Relations: Postphenomenology and Philosophy of Technology

Location: DesignLab of the University of Twente, The Netherlands
Date: 11.07.-13.07.2018

The conference intends to bring together scholars in philosophy of technology with the broader field of research in human-technology interaction. For this occasion, we are reaching out to philosophers, scholars, artists, designers, and engineers, in order to foster dialogue and creative collaborations around the interactions between humans, technologies, and society.
As has been emphasised by several authors (e.g. Ihde, Haraway, Feenberg, Vallor, Latour, Verbeek), we cannot uphold strict distinctions between humans and technologies. As human beings, we are always interwoven with technologies in our daily practices. At this conference the aim is to reflect on the consequences of this idea in, for example, philosophy, ethics, science, sociology, design, art, politics, anthropology, engineering, etc.

The conference aims to:
- Present philosophical work and interdisciplinary research in and on human-technology relations
- Explore how philosophical, design, and art research can contribute to envisioning the potentials of future human-technology relations
- Investigate how research in human-technology relations can inform policy making and political agendas, critically and constructively
