Enlightening Lunch: Craig Calhoun

Enlightening Lunch

Craig Calhoun is professor of social sciences at ASU. He holds joint appointments in the School of Politics and Global Studies, the School of Public Affairs, the School for the Future of Innovation in Society, the School of Sustainability, and the School of Arts, Media and Engineering.

His work focuses on strengthening the ability of the social sciences, working together with the natural sciences and humanities, to address the most complex challenges facing society today — challenges ranging from the shifting nature of globalization to the future of place-based communities and of democracy; the complicated social and ethical issues raised by new technologies; and the need for creativity, solidarity and determination in order to achieve sustainable futures.

Calhoun is the author or co-author of eight books and more than 100 articles that address culture, social movements, education, communication, religion, nationalism, the impact of technology, capitalism and globalization, critical theory and philosophy, and contemporary and historical empirical research.

RSVP is requested.
