Morris and Dolores Kohl Kaplan Northwestern Day of the Chicago Humanities Festival

Modified: October 4, 2016

Join Kaplan to kick off the Chicago Humanities Festival FallFest/16: Speed with a full day of programming on Northwestern's Evanston campus on October 29th (talks begin at 1030am)! View more details here.

Our society seems to have one setting: faster. Start-ups rise and fall, information is retrieved instantaneously, and replying to texts can’t happen fast enough. We witness social movements that erupt seemingly overnight, and we prepare for the fallout caused by the rapid acceleration of climate change, all the while keeping our eye on what’s “trending.” Join the Chicago Humanities Festival to explore the issues and ideas that are rapidly shaping our lives today. Take a pause (if you can)—and welcome to FallFest/16: Speed.

With Maureen Dowd, Tim Wu, Jonathan Lethem, Hasan Elahi, and MORE!
Featuring Northwestern faculty Saul Morson (Slavic), Aymar Christian (Communication Studies), and Lydia Barnett (History).
