CFP: Technology and the Future of the Home
Missouri University of Science and Technology
November 5 – 6, 2020
Keynote Speaker: Diane Michelfelder, Macalester College
Research on how we conceptualize the home is increasing across the academy. However, studies about how technology challenges our conceptualization of the home require focus. The purpose of this colloquium is to develop and advance such conversations. Although submissions that interpret the home are welcome, abstracts focused on guiding its development to create a better world are highly encouraged. All disciplinary backgrounds and approaches are welcome. The scope of topics is open, but some motivational lines of inquiry include how the future of the home intersects with the following areas:
IoT in the Home
Zoning and Regulations
The Home as an Ecosystem
Challenges to Existing Infrastructure
Generational Differences and Challenges
Cohousing, Ecovillages and Intentional Communities
There is no registration fee. Upload anonymized abstracts of 250-350 words by June 15, 2020: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=tfh2020
