Life Under Drones Symposium

Posted by: Date: September 12, 2019 In: , , , ,

The Innovation Studies Program is pleased to sponsor the Life Under Drones Symposium, which takes place on the PLU campus on Wednesday and Thursday, September 18-19, 2019.

Life Under Drones is the first of its kind: a gathering of leaders in scholarly, military, artistic, and technology industries to assess the influence of drones on contemporary life. At its heart, the conference is about the practical and ethical consequences of this innovative form of technology that has dramatically changed the world.

Life Under Drones will feature keynotes presentations, panels, art installations, workshops, student research, and more as leaders from an array of diverse disciplines and industries come together to discuss the implications of drone technology in a rapidly changing society.

The Innovation Studies program is pleased to participate in a panel session on September 18 chaired by Dr. Michael Halvorson (from 2:45 p.m. to 3:35 p.m.), and to host the Innovation Studies Reception from 6:15 p.m. to 7:15 p.m. in Ingram Hall. Immediately after the reception, several drone-related films will be screened.

All are welcome!
