This interdisciplinary conference aims to bring together undergraduate students from across North America who are investigating (1) how science, technology and medicine (STM) affect societies; (2) how societal values and concerns inform and constitute STM; and/or (3) the historical and/or conceptual foundations of STM. Given the fast-paced nature of advances in STM and their deepening penetration into personal lives, critical thinking about STM is essential in our time. We invite submissions addressing the above topics from students across the arts, humanities, social sciences and natural sciences. We particularly encourage papers that transcend boundaries, whether disciplinary, spatial or temporal.
It will take place at the Richard E. Peeler Art Center from March 10-12, 2017.
