Digital and mechanical technologies have become indispensable in nearly every aspect of our lives so much so that we rarely think critically about the roles they should fill in social as well as individual existence. This semester CWTC presents a module that challenges our everyday indifference to things technological. Join us as we explore the uses and abuses of technology and consider what a human-centered use of technology might really look like.

Coffee with the Classics is a seminar for engaging foundational questions without the stress of grades or papers.  This informal seminar forum setting provides an opportunity to read and discuss some of the most influential and provocative thinkers of the ancient and modern Western Tradition.  Students and a faculty guide will read and discuss brief but momentous texts  over dinner and relaxed conversations.

RSVP Here for complementary Dinner and Texts.

All questions can be directed to Elizabeth Feeney at elife@sas.upenn.edu.
