An opportunity to discuss the politics of science and technology this Saturday afternoon, 11th April in London:
Radical Science and Alternative Technology: From the 70s to the Present.
April 11th, 1pm to 5.30pm, Feminist Library, 5 Westminster Bridge Road, London SE1 7XW. Free.
In our highly technological industrial society, key issues hinge on the politics of science and technology. In the 1970s and 80s the British Society for Social Responsibility in Science and the alternative technology movement campaigned against harmful corporate and military uses of technology, for 'appropriate technology' and for 'science for the people.' These perspectives are critically needed in the current environmental crisis, whilst surveillance, automation and workplace hazards continue to be major issues.
