Culture and Technology

Formed to foster cross-disciplinary conversations at Yale, this working group explores the interplay between culture and technology. Emphasizing the convergence of diverse academic disciplines, we delve into the intricate relationship technology maintains with society and its potential ramifications on humanity’s future. In an era where technology deeply entrenches itself in daily life, we facilitate an open dialogue that transcends traditional disciplinary boundaries.

Our group is an inclusive space for graduate students and faculty alike, hosting regular meetings to discuss readings focused around an annually agreed upon theme, with a preference for highlighting underrepresented scholarship. The group invites members from diverse academic backgrounds, providing a unique platform for engaging in meaningful discourse, learning from one another, and stimulating innovative thoughts on the societal implications of technology. Our aim is not only to understand these complex dynamics better but also to inspire collaborative efforts that contribute to informed and responsible technological evolution.
