Description:

 Wired Communities/ Wired Lives: Social Issues in Computing
Presented by the Charles Babbage Institute

The importance of computers in modern life is well appreciated, but throughout the development of the computer industry various communities have expressed concerns about the impact of this industry on human lives and have attempted to limit or shape this impact. This presentation examines a variety of alternate perspectives via the “Social Issues” collection at the Charles Babbage Institute.

Literary Manuscripts: Silences and Outbursts
Presented by the Upper Midwest Literary Archives

This event is part of Out of Bounds: Challenging the Status Quo, this year's First Fridays series at Elmer L. Andersen Library. The series will explore the concepts of suppression and expression in the varied collections held by the University of Minnesota Libraries.

Throughout history, questions of access versus restriction have been debated in scientific theory, religion, political thought, and creative thinking. Presenters will examine who have decided these questions—and why.
