Globalization and Technology from a Philosophical Perspective: The Theoretical Security of the Global Technological Order
The Quetico Centre, Northwestern Ontario, Canada
August 4-9, 2002
After its successful 2000 inaugural retreat on "Globalization, Technology and Philosophy" and 2001 retreat on "Globalization, Technology and Culture," The Paideia Retreat Committee and Carleton University is organizing its 2002 meeting on "The Theoretical Security of the Global Technological Order." The meeting will take place from August 4th to the 9th, 2002 at the Quetico Centre in Northwestern Ontario, Canada.
The Retreat has a simple agenda: to bring together a small group of
academics to think, write and talk. Once again, we are considering
globalization and technology from a philosophical perspective. This year we are focusing on the idea of security.
We plan three full days of paper presentations, roundtables and keynote
addresses and one free day to enjoy the beautiful scenery and recreation facilities of the Quetico Centre.
This year's guest list includes Professors James Rosenau, Gad Horowitz, and Ian Angus, among notable others. Professors Don Ihde and Arthur Kroker were our 2001 keynote speakers.
Colleagues wishing to join the Retreat are asked to send a 300 word abstract and a half-page Curriculum Vitae to the co-chairs of the Committee, David Tabachnick and Toivo Koivukoski, by e-mail before March 1st, 2002.
Proposals will be reviewed and successful applicants will be notified.
Participants will be asked to submit their papers for a
anthology/collection. Our 2000 meeting generated Globalization, Technology, and Philosophy under contract with SUNY Press.
