Keynote Speaker

Cathy N. Davidson, an educational innovator and a distinguished scholar of the history of technology, is an avid proponent of active ways of learning that help students to understand and navigate the radically changed global world in which we now all live, work, and learn. Davidson is Distinguished Professor of English and Founding Director of the Futures Initiative at the Graduate Center, CUNY, and the R. F. DeVarney Professor Emerita of Interdisciplinary Studies at Duke University where she served as Duke’s (and the nation’s) first Vice Provost for Interdisciplinary Studies.

In her new book, The New Education: How to Revolutionize the University to Prepare Students for a World In Flux, Davidson argues that we desperately need a revolution in higher learning if we want students to succeed in our current age of precarious work and technological disruption.
