Maintainers II: Labor, Technology and Social Orders

A conference sponsored by the College of Arts and Letters

Maintainers Conference

Following the success of 2016's Maintainers conference, Stevens is proud to host Maintainers II: Labor, Technology and Social Orders.

Recent scholarship on technology has too often fetishized material things and their thinginess, and excluded any consideration of the humans who make those things work. The purpose of Maintainers II is to write humans back into stories of technology, as a way to highlight social inequalities, racial and ethnic disparities, and the structural maldistribution of the fruits of technological progress.
