This is a call for abstracts for those interested in participating in the first symposium of the South African Philosophy of Technology Working Group, hosted by the University of KwaZulu-Natal. This small specialist symposium focused on the Philosophy of Technology is to be held in or near Durban, South Africa on the 22nd, and perhaps 23rd, July this year. All papers will be given in plenary, with slots of at least 60 minutes.

We welcome abstracts or expressions of interest broadly related to the Philosophy of Technology. This includes but is not limited to approaches treating technology as technique, rationality, artefact, metaphysics, social structure, epistemology, aesthetics, patriarchy, ethos, etc. We will consider submissions from any school of thought, including but not limited to analytic philosophy, Critical Theory, phenomenology, and feminist theory. We would, furthermore, welcome contributions that approached distinctively African or South African topics or themes relating to technology.

The symposium is open to any scholar, including graduate students.

The symposium venue will be in or near the city of Durban.

If you wish to be considered for inclusion in the programme, please send a title and abstract (between 250 and 500 words) to on or before Friday 31st March. Notifications of acceptance will be sent out by Friday 7th April.
