The 1989 CBC Massey Lectures, "The Real World of Technology"


1989-massey-franklin.gifTechnology has always been a part of human existence. Today though, says the experimental physicist, Ursula M. Franklin, technology has large-scale effects on culture itself.

Ursula Franklin is an experimental physicist, University Professor Emeritus at the University of Toronto, a former board member of the National Research Council and the Science Council of Canada, and a companion of the Order of Canada. She has been awarded honorary degrees by more than ten Canadian universities.

The Real World of Technology is published by House of Anansi.
