You are invited to KU’s Summit on Navigating Digital Futures, an interdisciplinary symposium sponsored by the Office of the Provost and organized by faculty from the College of Liberal Arts & Sciences, William Allen White School of Journalism and Mass Communications, and School of the Arts. The summit is aimed at encouraging research collaborations in digital-related areas.
The summit will be held in The Commons at KU from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. on Friday, September 18, 2015.
Please join us for this opportunity to share ongoing research and make interdisciplinary connections within the KU community that could lead to collaboration, innovation, and grant funding.
The summit will feature two keynote speakers—Wendy Guillies, President and CEO of the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation, and Golan Levin, a digital media artist, professor and Director of the STUDIO for Creative Inquiry at Carnegie Mellon University. Following the speakers, the symposium will proceed as an “unconference,” an interactive, collaborative format designed to generate ideas for future research projects and collaborations.
We hope you will join us for this exciting opportunity. See the full conference schedule
