The next SIRG seminar — Wednesday 25 May @ 2 pm in the David Gorham Library (first floor Venables, N1015) — will be a round table discussion on technological determinism. Merritt Roe Smith and Leo Marx’s 1994 edited volume Does Technology Drive History? The Dilemma of Technological Determinism is a suggested starting point for discussion. The book’s introduction and three sample chapters are attached. The entire book is available from the OU’s Net Library.
Tea, coffee and biscuits will be available. I look forward to seeing you there.
