Teaching: Launch of Information, Society and Culture at Duke
Information, Society & Culture, a theme of Bass Connection, was officially launched at Duke.
"Bass Connections is a new university-wide initiative launched by a $50 million gift from Anne and Robert Bass. It will provide students with greater exposure to inquiry across the disciplines, partnership with unlikely fellow thinkers, sustained mentorship in teams, and the chance to experience the intersections of the academy and the real world."
"Information, Society and Culture will combine coursework, co-curricular experiences and integrated project teams to explore the evolution of society and culture through the lens of information, using the latest computational methods to understand society’s most pressing problems in new and creative ways."
