About this Event
USC Berggruen Fellow
Everyone wonders and worries about the world to come. But too rarely do we have the chance to do so systematically, creatively, and socially. This session considers some approaches to thinking about possible futures that may be useful for your scholarship, activism, and everyday life.
This event is co-sponsored by the Center on Science, Technology, and Public Life, the Berggruen Institute, and Media as SocioTechnical Systems (MASTS).
