Call for papers: Baylor Symposium on Faith and Culture, Technology and Human Flourishing


Technology changes us, and the world around us, in countless ways. The stuff of science fiction is now, in many cases, reality, and it can make our lives longer, healthier, and more productive than ever. But technological advance is not without complication, and even ardent proponents of technology recognize that our present age of innovation is fraught with concern for unintended consequences.

The 2012 Baylor Symposium on Faith and Culture invites reflection about technology and how it contributes to and, at times, compromises human flourishing. How should we understand and evaluate both the promise and peril of the things we create? What implications arise for our understanding of what it means to be human and live well? How might theological considerations, in particular Christian convictions about the things we make and how we use them, illuminate our understanding of technology?

A complete call for papers including a list of confirmed speakers and possible topics can be read online at [].
