Technology and the Humanities in the "Global" University
Third Floor, Levis Faculty Center 919 W. Illinois St. Urbana
As the "global" economy intensifies, the university is undergoing a radical change. While technology is the driving force of this transformations, disciplines in the humanities are absorbed with the problems of difference in gender and ethnicity. The recognition of diversity is liberating, of course, but it is not enough. The humanities must restore its interventionary role in the direction of technology, the construction of civilization, and the continuation of planetary life.Additional support from the Madden Initiative in Technology, Arts and Culture.
