Engineers, Technology, and Society

SERIES EDITOR: Caroline Baillie, University of Western Australia
The mission of this lecture series is to foster an understanding for engineers and scientists on the inclusive nature of their profession. The creation and proliferation of technologies needs to be inclusive as it has effects on all of humankind, regardless of national boundaries, socioeconomic status, gender, race and ethnicity, or creed. The lectures will combine expertise in sociology, political economics, philosophy of science, history, engineering, engineering education, participatory research, development studies, sustainability, psychotherapy, policy studies, and epistemology. The lectures will be relevant to all engineers practicing in all parts of the world. Although written for practicing engineers and human resource trainers, it is expected that engineering, science and social science faculty in universities will find these publications an invaluable resource for students in the classroom and for further research. The goal of the series is to provide a platform for the publication of important and sometimes controversial lectures which will encourage discussion, reflection and further understanding.
