New technologies have significant impacts on social interaction and social relations.

We will focus on workplace issues that have significant implications for society overall and explore questions about who controls technology decision-making, how changes in technology are introduced and promoted, the varied impacts of new technology on the workforce, and the means and methods for supporting democratic input into technological decisions.
