Kellogg Science and Humanities Seminars
Please note, this is a student led event.
New Technologies: Trends and Risks, Technoscapes and Techno-Futures
Emerging technologies and technological development are 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 diverse 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.
