Workshop June 2014: The normative dimensions of new technologies

By on 7. April 2014 in Events with 0 Comments

In this workshop we will aim to articulate and discuss approaches and methodology that seeks to make normative research activity and research output productive in contexts of ongoing societal and technological decision-making. Central questions at this workshop will include: What are the adequate methods for answering the normative challenges posed by emerging technologies? How do we combine empirical methods and philosophical theories in answering particular research questions related to technology development? How do we work with technology partners and policy makers, in committees and advisory boards, in a way that is philosophically fruitful? What kind of contributions should we aim to provide?

The purpose of the workshop is twofold:
1. To create an opportunity for researchers in Norwegian Philosophy departments in collaborating in research by reading each other’s papers and commenting on them to help enhance research in their respective fields.
2. To polish papers for submission to a special issue (we will propose publication in a special issue of the Nordic Journal of Applied Ethics).
Date and venue of the workshop: June 4-5, 2014, at the 1902 Building at Øya, Trondheim, Norway. Abstract submission: May 1. to
This workshop is part of the Research Council of Norway funded ISP-FIDE project Applied Ethics: Technology and Governance of Health and Natural Resources and is arranged through collaboration between the Programme for Applied Ethics and research groups at NTNU including the Research group on the ethos of Technology (RESET), Research group for ethics, society and technology (FEST), and VERP (Verksted for praktisk filosofi).
