SVE: Methods and Critical Issues Training

Seminar Virtual Event: Methods and Critical Issues Training on 'History, Policy, Designing AI'

Friday 24 July 2020, 15:00–17:00 BST

In 1869, J. R. Seeley wrote, 'History is the school of statesmanship.' How might historians today understand themselves as political actors versus seemingly neutral observers or interpreters? How does the craft pursuit of writing history relate to power structures engaged in the development of AI? This panel connects leaders who engage with historical methods in their own work, be that in the world of activism, design or policy, and asks them to share their views from outside academia.
