Values in Technological Design poster

The design of technical objects often shapes their use, and can have political, social, and cultural consequences. A talk at N.Y.U. by Sara Hendren (MDesS ‘13, researcher in the Program on Art and the Public Domain and fellow at metaLAB) and Geoffrey Bowker (professor of informatics at U.C. Irvine) investigates the ways in which values become embodied in technological design and what efforts we might make to challenge maladaptive structures.

The event on April 12th at 6:30 p.m. is sponsored by Program, a collaborative, interdisciplinary series organized by N.Y.U. graduate students.
