Fourth Annual
RIT Undergraduate Global Humanities Virtual Conference
April 8 - 11, 2024
Theme: Ethics and How We Conduct Our Lives

You can download the program of the conference here.

Postmodernism inaugurated an avalanche of redefinitions of human values.  The human community appears comfortable to speak of “post” as a prefix for a new understanding about the nature of humanity.  Now, post-truth, posthumanism and the attendant transhumanism, post-racism are all ideas available for redefining the human condition.  The results of these ideas include dislodging of the prevailing beliefs as untenable, for example, the distinction between and among humans, animals, and technology, or the fragile and fleeting nature of truth, hence the reduction of the question of ethics, the question of good, human conduct.  Yet, without ethics, humanity resorts to barbarism and various phenomena that privilege tendencies to inhumanity, recklessness, social irresponsibility, insecurities, war, hunger, fraudulence, to name a few. The theme of the conference, “Ethics and How We Conduct Our Lives,” invites examinations of what we have become as a human community.   In the tradition of RIT Undergraduate Global Humanities Conference, the conference brings students from RIT Global Campuses-China, Croatia, Dubai, Kosovo, Rochester-- and beyond to engage the theme through, but not limited to, the following topics:

  • Cultivating Wellness:  Ethics of Food Production and Consumption
  • Artificial Intelligence and Human Nature
  • Corporate Social Responsibility
  • Migrant Labor
  • War
  • Borders, Migration, and the Refugees
  • Frameworks for Ethical Conducts
  • AI, ChapGPT, and Education
