RSVPed Attending Future Trends Forum: Academia, race, and the pandemic

A conversation with a leading scholar and activist

Thursday, May 21, 11 am - 12 pm (PDT)

How does the pandemic impact a society structured by racial inequalities? What does this mean for higher education, and how can we respond?

We will investigate these questions with Jessie Daniels, an activist and scholar of racism and the digital world.  Daniels is faculty associate at the Harvard Berkman Klein Center and professor at Hunter College (Sociology) and The Graduate Center, CUNY (Sociology, Critical Social Psychology, Africana Studies).

The Future Trends Forum is a weekly discussion event created and hosted by Bryan Alexander.  Since 2016 we have addressed the most powerful forces of change in academia. Each week, this video chat brings together practitioners in the field to share their most recent work and experience in education and technology. The intent of the Forum: to advance the discussion around the pressing issues at the crossroads of education and technology.

Bryan is also the founder of the Future of Education Observatory, which includes the Forum, the Future Trends in Technology and Education report, a blog, and a bookclub.
