Subject: Symposium on Technology, Knowledge and Society, Montréal, Canada, June 2006 - Call for Papers

Dear Colleague,

I am writing to you on behalf of the Organising Committee to inform you of the:

SYMPOSIUM ON TECHNOLOGY, KNOWLEDGE AND SOCIETY McGill University, Montréal, Canada 9-10 June 2006 http://www.Technology-Conference.com

The symposium will take a broad and cross-disciplinary approach to technology in society. Participants will include researchers, teachers and practitioners whose interests are either technical or humanistic, or whose work crosses over between the applied technological and social sciences.

A special theme of this symposium will be the complex relations between Technology and Citizenship. Technology is deeply implicated in the organisation and distribution of social, political and economic power. Technological artefacts, systems and practices arise from particular historical situations, and they condition subsequent social, political and economic identities, practices and relationships. In short, technology—industrial technology, transportation technology, information and communication technology, learning technology, bio and genetic technology, nanotechnology, etc.-is a matter in which citizenship is at stake. This symposium is dedicated to exploring the various ways in which technology and citizenship bear upon each other historically, and in the present context.

We would particularly like to invite you to respond to the symposium call for papers. The symposium will also include numerous paper, workshop and colloquium presentations. Papers submitted by participants will be peer-refereed and published, if accepted by the referees, in print and electronic formats in the International Journal of Technology, Knowledge and Society. If you are unable to attend the symposium in person, virtual registrations are also available which allow you to submit a paper for refereeing and possible publication in this fully refereed academic journal, as well as access to the electronic version of the journal (including all historical material). The deadline for the first round of the call for papers is 15 JANUARY 2006. Proposals are reviewed within four weeks of submission.

Full details of the symposium, including an online call for papers form, are to be found at the symposium website - http://www.Technology-Conference.com.

Yours Sincerely,

Darin Barney, PhD
Canada Research Chair in Technology and Citizenship Chair, Dept. of Art History and Communication Studies McGill University Montreal, QC, Canada
