York College of Pennsylvania is pleased to be hosting the Humanities and Technology Association’s annual conference on October 14, 15, and 16, 2004. The theme for this year’s conference is “Technology and Religion.” Especially encouraged are essays that address this theme from the perspectives of popular culture, including the representation of technology and religion in science fiction and fantasy, cinematic portrayals of technology and religion, representations on popular television shows such as “Buffy: The Vampire Slayer,” the various Star Trek franchises, Stargate SG-1, etc.
The Humanities and Technology Association was established in October 1978 to promote an interdisciplinary interchange among the humanities, scientific, and technological domains and disciplines, and it sponsors both a journal and an annual conference. The conference serves as a valuable venue for promoting understanding of the cultural interaction of the humanities, science, engineering, and technology. The conference also helps reveal how humanistic concerns interface with technological achievements and advances.
Please forward a one-page abstract by August 31, 2004, including information regarding your institutional affiliation and contact information, to firstname.lastname@example.org, or mail a hardcopy to:
