Implementation of six public discussions on disability and technology at the New York Public Library for the Performing Arts.

We will create a series of 6 public conversations, Shaping Humans: On Technology, Disability, and Human Flourishing. With the term flourishing we refer to the experience of humans engaging in activities they find meaningful. Technologies, from wheelchairs to prenatal genetic testing, can impact flourishing in profound ways. Yet, because technologies are so deeply woven into our lives, it is difficult to gain the distance needed to reflect on the difference between when they do and don’t promote flourishing. Our series, drawing directly on work by scholars spanning the humanities, seeks to create this critical distance. A distinctive feature of our series is our focus on the experience of people with disabilities. By exploring the complex and sometimes ambivalent ways that people with disabilities resist and embrace technologies in their attempts to flourish, we will shed light on the complex and sometimes ambivalent ways that all human beings encounter technologies.
