Fall Conference 2017

The Doubled-Edged Sword of Technology


November 17–18, 2017

Dudley H. Davis Center, University of Vermont

This conference brings humanities perspectives to technology—past, present, and future. We will view technology through the lenses of history, literature, art, architecture, and ethics. Technology may be the primary source of progress, but it is also the root of numerous problems. The development and use of technology influences the values of a society and bring with it new ethical questions.

The Vermont Humanities Council invites you to its 44th annual Fall Conference to explore the ways that technology has shaped culture, society, and human interaction, and even affected our understanding of who we are.

Enjoy 14 breakout sessions and these three plenary talks:
