National Academy of Engineering Regional Meeting and Symposium
Anticipating the Future: Historical Narratives, Imagination, and Innovation
“Anticipating the Future: Historical Narratives, Imagination, and Innovation” will explore tools and methods drawn from history that can help us generate more-inclusive conversations about technologies of today and tomorrow. While new and emerging innovations in science and technology often appear to present unique and novel social, ethical, and political challenges, many of these challenges have historical precedents. Here we explore avenues for engagement and reflection that can enable discussion, deliberation, and decision making between those inside and outside the lab.
