Abstract of Kevin LaGrandeur’s Article

The article, “Robots, Moving Statues, and Automata in Ancient Tales and History”, was published in Critical Insights: Technology & Humanity, Ed. Carol Colatrella, Salem Press, 2012.  Pp. 99-111.

Here’s an abstract of the article:

What is really significant when we look at technology in the ancient world is that technology is not limited to Classical mythology, but in the literature of other cultures as well. These other accounts include quasi-mythological tales like The Iliad, tales from ancient cultures in India and China, and non-fictional accounts of real instances of technological innovation by ancient inventors. The devices made by ancient Greek engineers—such as the Antikythera mechanism, or the devices of Ctsebius and Hero of Alexandria, and Philon of Byzantium—are especially notable because they reflect, and are reflected by, the various fictional accounts. Chief in importance among technological innovations that appear in all three realms (stories, myths, and reality) are automata, especially humanoid automata. Their main significance is their ability to enhance and project the power and status of their makers or owners, who were sometimes the same individuals.

Meet Beverly J. Butcher, Ph.D.

Beverly Butcher

In 2009, when Associate Professor Beverly J. Butcher, Ph.D., was employed at a university in northern Florida, she taught courses on multicultural literature and writing as well as the work of female authors in China. It was the latter courses on the writings of Nobel Prize winner Pearl Buck's The Exile and Fighting Angel and Anchee Min's Red Azalea and Empress Orchid that Butcher says invoked her longing to return to China, where she had lived four years previously, in Taiwan and Shanghai. Now, she directs the NYIT Center for Humanities and Culture at NUPT and chairs the English department at NYIT's Nanjing campus. Read more.

Kevin LaGrandeur Joins International Technology Think Tank

The Institute for Ethics and Emerging Technologies is a nonprofit, international think tank founded in 2004 which includes members from Italy, Sweden, Canada, Germany, and the United States (among other places). By promoting and publicizing the work of international thinkers who examine the social implications of scientific and technological progress, they seek to contribute to the understanding of the impact of emerging technologies on individuals and societies, locally and globally. They also aim to help produce benefits and reduce the risks of technological advancement.  This invitation was, in part, prompted by Dr. LaGrandeur's recent presentations in Europe.
