Emerging Global Order colloquium

28-29 April 2011 at the University of Minnesota Practicing Science, Technology and Rhetoric: The North-South Divide in an Emerging Global Order

Colloquium on Technology, Culture, & Communication

Description. This colloquium will highlight work being done at the University of Minnesota exploring the interdependent and global nature of contemporary science and technology practices. Participants will explore how those who work within institutions of science and/or employ emerging technologies, like (but not limited to) new information and communication technologies (ICTS), frame political, economic, cultural, and environmental arguments about the impacts of their practices on "others". In particular, we will focus on how the diffusion of contemporary science and technology practices plays out in transnational projects that span the divide between countries in the global North and South.
