Crises and Congress: Technology and the Future of Governance

Thu., Feb. 24, 2022 - Thu., Mar. 10, 2022

Wexner Building - Room 102, Marc Heng and Family Conference Room

The Technology and Public Purpose Project will host a study group on "Crises and Congress: Technology, Fakes, and the Future of Governance." Organized by TAPP fellow Leisel Bogan, this study group explores three recent crises in governance and how Congress has responded to each crisis. The sessions will address the Section 230 debates, proposed legislation designed to address fake information and internet harms, legislative and executive modernization issues and efforts in the midst of the pandemic, and how technology is (or isn’t) used to solve foreign policy challenges.

The study group will meet every Thursday from February 24th to March 10th at 5:30pm in Wexner 102.

The format will be hybrid. For limited in-person attendance, please sign up here: https://forms.gle/LnohcoABbDW2D2EP6. For virtual access, a link will be sent prior to each session. 

Once selected to join the study group, attendees will receive a course syllabus.
