Spring 2013 Dream Course: Political Economy, Technological Innovation and Values

You are invited to join us next semester to explore a dilemma faced by people around the world:  How do we as a society advance technologically and politically while also doing what’s right for the environment?

How we answer this question will ultimately define our generation.  With so much at stake, what are the ideal methods for identifying, examining and communicating these issues?

This innovative dream course comes from the collaboration between OU engineering professor Farrokh Mistree and philosophy professor Edward Sankowski.  Providing additional knowledge is Aban Marker Kabraji, Asia regional director the International Union for Conservation of Nature.

The seminar is complementary and open to students and members of the public

OU undergraduate and graduate students of any major wanting to take the class for credit can enroll in the course: AME 4971/5971.001.

Those interested in a three-credit Philosophy can request enrollment in PHIL 4990 Independent Study, or PHIL 5990 Independent Study, and will be required to do additional work. Contact Dr. Sankowski at esankowski@ou.edu or 325-0321 for more information.
