Series description

Join us for our ongoing conversation series about critical thinking and teaching in a digital age. Our theme for Fall 2018 is Reimagining Writing. How are concepts like style, authorship, authenticity, and authority evolving as remixing, collaboration, and even artificial intelligence tools become more commonplace in content creation? How can we rethink audience, privilege, knowledge, and research practices in ways that are both rigorous and generative?

All programs will take place from 4:00 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.  in the Academic Innovation Studio.

All instructors and academic staff are welcome; no prior experience necessary. Free snacks and adult beverages included!

Hosted by the Berkeley College Writing Programs and the Library.
