Humanities in the Age of AI Lunch meeting

October 2, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm  |  Humanities 1, Room 210


The Humanities Institute Research cluster, “Humanities in the Age of AI,” is pleased to invite you to it’s inaugural lunch meeting scheduled for October 2 (Monday) at noon in HUM 210. The research cluster boasts a diverse group of core participants. This includes six esteemed faculty members from various disciplines, graduate students representing politics, history, literature, philosophy, feminist studies, and film and visual studies, and undergraduate scholars from computer science, computational media, and creative writing.

The objective of our forthcoming meeting is dual: to foster social and intellectual connections. We aspire to cultivate a community centered on the humanities and artificial intelligence nexus. In alignment with this vision, each participant must be prepared to introduce themselves to the collective formally. Also, in each meeting, we will highlight a participant to present a project they are currently engaged with. For our inaugural luncheon, Ms. Lucia Vitale from the Department of Politics has consented to share insights from her recent study, “Artificial Intelligence and the Politics of Avoidance in Global Health.”

The Humanities Institute (THI) will graciously cater lunch. Once we have obtained our meals, we will gather and take our seats. 10 minutes has been set aside to elucidate the cluster’s overview. Following this, we will go ahead with individual introductions. After a short five-minute recess, Ms. Vitale will begin her presentation, anticipated to last for approximately 20 minutes. A structured dialogue on the topic will follow.

For those who prefer to schedule in advance, please note the dates for our brown bag meetings throughout the academic year: 10/2 (lunch provided), 11/6, 12/11, 1/8 (lunch provided), 2/12 (featuring Davide Panagia), 3/4, 4/8 (lunch provided), and 5/6. THI will graciously cater on the three specified dates. For the remaining meetings, attendees are cordially invited to bring their lunch. We are honored to have Professor Davide Panagia from UCLA present on 2/12; arrangements are underway to secure another external speaker for a subsequent session.
