Humanities and Technology Review (HTR)
CALL FOR ARTICLES AND BOOK REVIEWS
HTR is the interdisciplinary peer reviewed journal, published annually, of the Humanities and Technology Association (HTA). Generally, HTR explores the interface between the humanities and technology. All disciplines are welcome. For the Fall 2011 edition (volume 30), we are looking for article submissions and reviews of books in the following tracks:
PHILOSOPHICAL, POLITICAL, AND ETHICAL DIMENSIONS: topics focused on how technology impacts the sense of being human; the environment; political participation and democratic governance; sustainability; power and global equality.
TECHNOLOGY AND SOCIAL LIFE: topics dealing with questions such as: does technology enable new/destroy old forms of social life; advance/hinder gender equality; raise/diminish standards of living and economic well-being; suggest/force human adaptations to technological environments?
REPRESENTATIONS OF TECHNOLOGY: the manifold interactions of art and technology; aesthetic and artistic accounts of and reactions to the destruction of old/the creation of new technologies
TECHNOLOGY AND EDUCATION: topics focused on the broader interface between technology and pedagogy; technology, education, and the classroom
