Knowledge Futures Forum
Thursday, October 20–Friday, October 21
Goizueta Business School, Emory University
Boynton Auditorium, Room E130
This Knowledge Futures Forum considers the impact of generational differences for learning, working, and being civically engaged in the 21st century. As we celebrate Emory University’s 175th anniversary, we use this as an opportunity to re-generate a vision of the university, of education, and of learning within and across generations. Participants from a variety of perspectives explore the roles of media and journalism, the nature of democratic engagement, changing patterns of work and learning, and the roles of creativity and innovation.
Keynote speakers include Debra Vidali, professor of anthropology at Emory; Mark Lipton, associate professor in the School of English and Theatre Studies at the University of Guelph; and Richard DeMillo, director of the Center for 21st Century Universities at the Georgia Institute of Technology. A screening of Race to Nowhere: The Dark Side of America's Achievement Culture takes place Thursday evening.
A live webcast of the entire event will be available to those who are unable to attend the forum in person.
