Think & Drink: The Future of War
Admission: Free to the public
What will the wars of tomorrow look like? Given current advances in robotics, electronic surveillance, and digital sabotage, future battles may be fought as much from cubicles as in the trenches. Will a future of robotic warfare lessen the human cost of international conflict, or will fighting by proxy desensitize us to the horrors of war? Or both?
Join Oregon Humanities in considering these questions and others like them with Tung Yin, a professor at Lewis & Clark Law School, and General Merrill A. McPeak, former Chief of Staff of the United States Air Force, in the final conversation in Oregon Humanities’ 2012 Think & Drink series.
