The Question Concerning Technology and Biology

The Question Concerning Technology and Biology (A conference held on 19-20 December 2016)

 

Summary:

In which arenas are biology & technology cooperating, complementing each other, coevolving and possibly merging, and in which are they competing, merely mimicking one another, or pulling towards different ends? What sort of boundary work between the made and the born is involved in these processes? Each panel engages a different type of relationship between biology and technology that is addressed by the multiple perspectives of science, humanities, and the arts.
