NU heading back to the future – NU2042 Part IV


Hop in your souped-up DeLorean, hit 88mph and get to the Grande Event Centre on November 9 for the fourth installment of NU2042, Nipissing’s futuristic faculty speaker series.

Five faculty presenters will look 25 years into the future through the lens of their research.  Each speaks for just five minutes each, making for an accessible, fast-paced evening that’s sure to inspire some thoughtful discussion.  A question and answer session follows the presentations. 

Faculty speaking on November 9 include:
  • Dr. Renee Bedard, Assistant Professor of Native Studies
  • Dr. Nancy Black, Executive Director of the Harris Learning Library
  • Dr. Stephen Connor, Assistant Professor of History
  • Dr. Cindy Peltier, Chair of Indigenous Education
  • Dr. Mary Pat Sullivan, Director of the School of Human and Social Development
This is the fourth NU2042 event, and the first three have been highly successful.  We’ve learned about human evolution, the future of literacy, the importance of social entrepreneurship, the potential for engineered eyes and brains, artificial intelligence, how we can combat human trafficking, what religion might look like in a quarter century, and the death of football. 

What will the world look like in 2042? What amazing new inventions will have transformed our collective reality? Who will be the global super powers? Will we be able to breathe the air? Will earth be a garden paradise or a dystopian wasteland?

NU2042 is part of Nipissing University’s 25th anniversary celebrations.

Predicting the future is always difficult, but by gauging the impact of the first three NU2042 events, you are going to have a great time.

Your last opportunity to see the future is on December 7, the fifth and final installment of NU2042.
