Description

Dear colleagues,

Please, consider a call for papers to an international conference on "Human-Technology Relations: Postphenomenology and Philosophy of Technology," to take place on July 11-13, 2018 at the University of Twente, the Netherlands. The conference wants to bring together 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 emphasized 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. This conference aims to reflect on the consequences of this idea in philosophy, ethics, science, sociology, design, art, politics, anthropology, engineering, etc.

We welcome abstract submissions for posters, papers, panels, and workshops:
* Papers - abstract 250 words, and up to three keywords [20 minutes talk, 10 minutes for discussion].
* Panel proposals - can consist of up to 4 abstracts (see above), should include a general description (200 words) and a short Bio of participants and organiser.
* Posters - abstract 250 words, and up to three keywords. (Master students only, there will be a poster competition) .
* Workshops - description of 250 words, specific requirements.
Abstracts, along with a short Bio, should be sent to phtr2018 at gmail.com before Februari 15th.

For an extended call for papers and description of the conference, please, visit: https://www.utwente.nl/en/phtr/Call%20for%20Papers/
