Event Type Teach-In
Organizer/AuthorDallas Blanchard
Efficiency, automation, speed, performance, standardization, and increased productivity–the concept of machine technology has become pervasive. Work is labor power, and workers are ciphers in the mundane fields of personnel and human resource management. Where in the world did the conversion of people into machines come from? What are its effects? Where is this headed? Fresno City College History Professor Paul Gilmore will address these themes in a very special, free lecture–”Are we tools of our tools? Technological Development in American History” to be held Thursday, February 8th at 7 pm at the CAFE Infoshop, 935 F St, in downtown Fresno. There is free parking, and the event is wheelchair accessible. That’s a lecture by Professor Paul Gilmore, “Are we Tools of Our Tools?” Thursday, February 8th at 7pm at the Collective for Arts, Freedom, and Ecology Infoshop, 935 F St. in Fresno’s historic Chinatown.
