Description: On May 14-16 of 2008 NanoScience and Technology Studies at the University of South Carolina will bring together an international group of scholars to examine the ways that nanotechnology is consumed. We are particularly, though not exclusively, interested in examining the consumption of nanotechnology from the point of view of the humanities. We will look at nanotechnology from its role in making better tennis rackets, through its power as a brand for marketing, to the ways that it is seen as an essential part of regional and national development and growth. It is time to look at Nanotechnology not as a promise for the future, but as a developing technology that affects us in the present. This conference will continue the University of South Carolina’s tradition of bringing the international community together to examine broad issues in the social and ethical implication of nanotechnology. Papers will be limited to 20 minutes reading time with a 10-minute question and answer period. Panel or workshop proposals are also encouraged. Panels and Workshops should fit into a 90-minute time period. Proposals should include a description of the panel or workshop, a list of participants including their institutional affiliation and roles in the panel/workshop, and contact information for all participants. While presentations that address the theme of the conference are preferred any presentation that addresses social and ethical implications of nanotechnology will be considered. Electronic submissions of 500-word proposals (pdf or RichText formats) will be accepted to January 15, 2008. Early acceptance of papers will be available for authors who require it because of visa or other travel issues. If you require early acceptance please state so in your abstract. The conference is supported by the University of South Carolina’s Nanocenter and a NIRT-grant from the National Science Foundation.
