CALL FOR PAPERS: deadline 15 June 2007

Sustainable Transformations: Technology and Its Environments
Humanities and Technology Association Conference
Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology, Terre Haute, Indiana
October 4-6, 2007

The theme of the 31st Annual Humanities and Technology Conference
reflects the contemporary interest in the multiple interfaces of
technologies and their environments. HTA invites individual papers and
session proposals addressing the conference theme from the viewpoints of
the humanities, the sciences, and engineering.

In addition to the conference theme, papers on all other aspects of the
interactions of technology, science, and the humanities are welcome.
Next to innovations explicitly designed to protect the environment,
modern technology creates new environments and alters existing ones,
both natural and human-made. Whether it be with respect to aging,
privacy, healthcare, education, transportation, or communication, new
technologies keep redefining our environments for us.

This conference (www.rose-hulman.edu/hta2007) invites contributions that
explore, for example:
*developments in environmental technology, as well as the political,
social, and economic challenges they pose;
*the destruction and/or creation through technology of natural, human
made, or virtual environments of all kinds;
*aesthetic and artistic reactions to the destruction or creation of new
*the sustainability of natural or virtual environments;
*human adaptations to technological environments;
*philosophical and ethical dimensions of technological environments;
*the ecology of environments.

Please submit a one-page proposal (200 words) by June 15, 2007 to:
