Lewis College Roundtable

Lewis College RoundtableLewis College engages in compelling work at the intersection of people and technology, and strives to create cross-disciplinary dialogue. The Lewis College Roundtable reflects that mission. Instead of a standard lecture, invited panelists, ranging from academics to industry experts, participate in a 90-minute, moderated discussion about a chosen topic. Their unique perspectives on the given theme create a lively discussion that allows our guests to think more deeply about these topics of far-reaching significance.

In the next Roundtable, Digital Discourse and Civil Society, scholars from the fields of digital ethics, social psychology, and gaming will explore what constitutes a civil society in the digital age.
