Is AI good for the planet? 
Benedetta Brevini

Part of the Digital Delights and Disturbances lecture series Fall 2021, "Is AI Good for the Planet?" will host Benedetta Brevini, journalist, media activist and Associate Professor of Communication at the University of Sydney, as the guest speaker. The event takes its name from Brevini's latest book Is AI Good for the Planet? (Polity, 2021) where she asks us to think about AI in a different, and more material way than most of us have in the past.

Fragmentary Memory—a narrative exploration of American Wars in Afghanistan and Vietnam
Drew Pham

A former US army captain, queer poet Drew Pham explores the intersections between the American Wars in Afghanistan and Viet Nam through fictional and lyrical fragments mirroring the experiences of civilians, soldiers, and refugees caught in the milieu of America's longest wars. This talk/performance seeks to defamiliarize the familiar and familiarize the unfamiliar in order to create an empathic imaginary to uncover the human themes of intergenerational trauma, gender and sexuality, legacies of violence, and families in times of conflict.
