…a masterful job going beyond the headlines to explain why the future needs engineers as much as it does philosophers, and why the two need each other. — Ian Bremmer, President of Eurasia Group Scott Hartley, author of The Fuzzy and the Techie, will present the Greenfield Lecture on February 28 at 6:30 pm in HSS 1041. The Greenfield Lecture is sponsored by the College of Liberal Arts and Communication in partnership with the A-State Faculty Center. In his new book, Hartley explores the intersections of the Liberal Arts and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math subjects) and asserts that the Liberal Arts brings the human perspective to all aspects of our technological world and that the future success of the economy is dependent on both the fuzzy and the techie. Hartley, a venture capitalist and startup advisor, has been an investment partner at Mohr Davidow Ventures and a partner at Metamorphic Ventures in New York. Prior to becoming a venture capitalist, he served as a Presidential Innovation Fellow at the White House, and worked at Google, Facebook, and Harvard’s Berkman Center for Internet & Society. With generous funding support from College of Liberal Arts and Communication in partnership with A-State Faculty Center.
