May 04, 2010

Joel Garreau, Lincoln Professor of Law, Culture and Values at the Sandra Day O'Connor College of Law, and Director of The Prevail Project: Wise Governance for Challenging Futures at the College of Law, recently participated in an open forum on the impact of emerging military technology.

Garreau joined Professor Clark Miller of the ASU School of Politics and Professor Brian Smith of the School of Life Sciences at the Military Technology Open Forum on Thursday, April 29. The event was sponsored by CETMONS - the Consortium of Emerging Technology, Military Operations and National Security, and The Triple Helix at ASU, an international student-run forum for discussion and interdisciplinary thought.

Garreau, an Affiliated Faculty Member, ASU Consortium for Science, Policy & Outcomes, is a student of culture, values and change. He is the author of Radical Evolution: The Promise and Peril of Enhancing Our Minds, Our Bodies, and What It Means to Be Human, a look at the hinge in history at which we have arrived. As director of The Prevail Project, he is building on a Radical Evolution concept that the Prevail Scenario - the humanistic possibility that we can control and direct this future - might be encouraged. Garreau also is co-director of the ASU-New America Foundation Partnership and a Thrust Group Leader for "The Seven Horizons Project" of the ASU CETMONS.
