DePauw University will play host this weekend to students from throughout the country in the inaugural National Annual Undergraduate Research Conference on Science, Technology, Medicine and Society. The conference will feature student presentations on how science, technology and medicine intersect with religion, ethics, gender, race, politics and the environment.
The conference will feature a keynote address from Monica Green, professor of the history of medieval medicine and global health at Arizona State University. Anne Harris, vice president of academic affairs at DePauw, says the event "gathers crucial conversations about the role of science, technology, and medicine in shaping society and vice versa."
"Given the fast-paced nature of advances in STM and their deepening penetration into personal lives, critical thinking about STM is essential in our time," says Nahyan Fancy, associate professor of history at DePauw and organizer of the conference. "We are delighted to have a strong set of presentations engaging with some of the most pressing issues of our time and are pleased that DePauw will serve as the host for these important and thought provoking conversations."
The conference runs through Sunday. You can find more information on the event by clicking here.
