The 35th Annual Humanities and Technology Association (HTA) Conference in 2013 was held at the St. Thomas University, Miami Gardens, Florida.

My session/panel was on the first day, Nov. 7th, 2013, at Kennedy Hall, right beside St. Anthony Chapel:


Dr. Beth Stovell, of STU, ably moderated my panel. First came Dr. Justin Peart (STU) who talked about the costs of CellPhone use, esp. in underdeveloped and developing countries, then came me, then after me came Dr. Jerry Brown, who made a very interesting presentation on 'The HYDROGEN Revolution' [Hydrogen as a better (safer, healthier, life-saving, etc.) energy source].

[L-R: Dr. Peart, Dr. Brown, Dr. Darrell Arnold, Conference Chair, & me]

The evening of the first day, we had a delightful Keynote Address by Dr. Lakshmi Reddi, Dean of Graduate Studies, Florida International University, who spoke on "From Love of Technological Beauty to Love as Beauty".

I was assigned to moderate, on the last day, Nov. 9th, Sat., a very interesting "Excursions into History" panel, where Dr. George Sochan, current President of the Humanities and Technology Association, presented his History paper on the Holocaust:
