The Quantitative Liberal Arts
A design sprint where we’ll explore the roles that statistics, algorithms, and “big data” play in the liberal arts. By the end of our hour together, we’ll have a list of concrete steps we can take to help our students (and even ourselves!) synthesize quantitative and critical reasoning in meaningful ways in our work. Bring your lunch (and we’ll bring dessert!).

Protest Bots: A Critical Workshop
Social media allows you to create what are called “bots” – automated and automatic generators of text and media. This workshop will explore how to create these bots as sites of protest and resistance. By the end of the event, we can all have our own “bot of conviction” sharing important messages with the world.
