The Wonder of Why
At LSA, we wonder. We wonder why we are here. We ask how the universe works, and how we organize societies. We all wonder—but the great professors and students use curiosity as a catalyst to find answers to the biggest questions. Wonder begins with a simple “why” and leads to discovery that advances science and society while shaping our world for the better.
What happens when technology and humanity collide? There can be significant ethical, identity, and inequality implications. The U-M Digital Studies Institute unites experts from across campus to explore how the digital world impacts the people in it—and those who are left out.
