Schaff to lecture on computing politics at DSU

A political theorist, author, and Northern State University professor will present a lecture on computing politics on Monday on the Dakota State University campus in Madison.

Dr. Jon Schaff will present a non-partisan lecture on Monday as part of the lecture series “The Cultural Consequences of Computers”, hosted by Dakota State’s Classics Institute, a think tank for considering the serious ethical and social problems created by the computer revolution.

Dr. Joseph Bottum, the director of DSU’s Classics Institute, said that Schaff’s lecture will be focused on political theory rather than political parties and need “for more humane politics to escape the computer-generated problems created over the last forty years”.  

Schaff’s lecture is free of charge and the public is encouraged to attend.  It will be held at noon on Monday in East Hall, room 101, on the DSU campus.
