Identity & Technology
Think about IT—identity and technology are inextricably linked in today’s society. Whether we view technology as a necessary evil or integral part of our everyday existence, we are defined both individually and as a culture by the technology we use.
The fall I.S. conference focused on the theme of “Identity & Technology,” and challenged King's to ask how we define technology and what we should do about it. Of course “technology” includes things like Twitter, Facebook, and text messages, but it also refers to a complex system and patterns of behaviour with deep sociological and spiritual implications.
Through lectures and discussion, we were reminded of our essential identity as human beings made in God’s image and explore what our relationship to technology says about that identity.
