Biennial Theme

2011-13 Technologies Without Borders: Technologies Across Borders

technologies_graphicThe 2011-2013 Biennial Theme, Technologies Without Borders: Technologies Across Borders, explores how the vast advancements in technology have changed the world. These alterations have truly been global in nature and have affected how humans live their lives every day. 

This theme aims to engage with many questions and dilemmas such as: the relationship between cultural practices, religions, values, beliefs, and new technologies; the consequences, intended and unintended, of global dependence on technologies; the relationship between nature and cyberspace; and the new forms of political organizing, including mobilizations, through the use of social media. These issues and others are explored through many events such as: “The Role of Technology in World History,” “Digital Divides and Learning Divides: Focus on Africa,” and “Gender Relations, Censorship, and the Global Social Media.”
