Paul Starr to Speak On The History of Innovation at IIT Conference

Paul Starr, the Stuart Professor of Communications and Public Affairs at Princeton University, will headline the upcoming Infrastructures of Creativity Conference at IIT in April with a keynote address titled “Innovation and Democracy in Post-Industrial America,” on April 10, 10:30 am, in the Hermann Hall Ballroom.

The two-day conference will consider today’s innovation landscape alongside that of the Atlantic Enlightenment, which was a period of remarkable innovation and creativity. Over the course of the two days, we will explore the types of institutional infrastructures and intellectual processes that foster or, alternatively, hinder innovation.

IIT students, faculty, staff, and alumni are invited to attend this event as well as all other keynote events. For a full list of conference events, or for more details, visit the conference website.
