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. The next meeting will take place on Friday October 28th online from 1pm to 2pm and we’ll be reading chapters 8-10 of Clive Lawson’s Technology & Isolation. Please contact us here if you’d like to attend so that we can send more specific joining instructions.
This is a joint event between Manchester Metropolitan University’s Digital Society group and the University of Manchester’s Digital Technologies, Communication & Education group.
