CO-SPONSORED SESSION: Religion and Humanism Unit and Science, Technology, and Religion Unit

Call for Papers: 

Life in the 21st century benefits from technological advances in the sciences. Most technologies, ranging from medical to communication devices, from transportation to data management systems promise to enhance life. And yet as we have learned over the last centuries, technology can also endanger life. We are especially interested in papers that address some of the following questions: "From the side of ethics, how can we judge technological advances?" alongside the hermeneutical question "What visions of an enhanced life are embedded and presupposed in certain technologies?" And: "How do technological visions resonate with specific religious conceptions of enhancing life?"

Proposals are anonymous to chairs and steering committee members until after final acceptance/rejection
