The Nebraska Governance and Technology Center is accepting application for its second class of faculty fellows. The fellows are academics with an interdisciplinary inclination and interested in the challenges of changing technology.
Nebraska Governance and Technology Faculty Fellows are drawn from across the university, with an approximate balance of three to five fellows each from the Colleges of Law, Business, Engineering, and Journalism and Mass Communications; three to five fellows from all other colleges; and five to 10 visiting faculty members from other academic institutions.
The goal of the fellows program is to develop a cohort of academics who are able to understand technology challenges in interdisciplinary terms: engineers who can talk supply chain management and the role of public engagement in federal regulation; journalists who can speak fluently with entrepreneurs and critically interrogate lawyers advocating for preferred policies; entrepreneurs who can ground technologists in the reality of what can be and push lawyers past their focus on what can’t be; and other permutations involving the law, humanities, sciences, and other fields.
During the 2021-2022 academic year the program will host 14 remote sessions for resident and visiting faculty fellows and fellows will participate in crafting short videos, podcasts, and other multimedia projects.
