Event description

Description

New Technologies: Trends and Risks, Technoscapes and Techno-Futures

Emerging technologies and technological development is of interest to all of the academic world. Ongoing changes affect all aspects of our work and lives, way beyond our research methodologies, changing our fieldwork and influencing focus of our study, including even the way the academic sector develops.
The aim of the first Kellogg Science and Humanities Seminars is to show to the wider public the diversity of ways in which technological novelties are entering our fields and research interests – from biology, nanotechnology, ICTs and machine learning, to digital humanities, social mobility and development critique.
