How do critical realists make sense of technology? What are the major themes, challenges and debates concerning technology within critical realist social theory? The purpose of this reading group is to explore these questions through monthly meetings to discuss relevant works on technology and critical realism.
We meet from 1pm to 2pm on the final Friday each month at Manchester Central Library. Please contact us here if you’d like to attend so that we can send more specific joining instructions. For the first meeting on September 30th we will read the first three chapters of Clive Lawson’s Technology and Isolation.
This is a joint event between Manchester Metropolitan University’s Digital Society group and the University of Manchester’s Digital Technologies, Communication & Education group.
