Sara Fine Institute Lecture features Lucy Suchman on “Sensing War at the Interface”

The University of Pittsburgh’s School of Information Sciences is pleased to announce the 2014 Sara Fine Institute (SFI) Lecture featuring Lucy Suchman on “Sensing War at the Interface.” The lecture will be held at the University Club, Ballroom B (123 University Place; Pittsburgh, PA 15260) at 3:00 p.m. on Thursday, November 6, 2014. A reception will follow.

Brian Beaton, Interim Director of the SFI says of the talk, "We have two award-winning researchers coming this year as part of the SFI lecture series. Lucy Suchman is the first. Suchman's books and papers are landmark texts in the field. She's also someone who continues to produce agenda-setting research on issues of broad significance. Her talk in November takes up issues of war, human-computer interaction, simulations, and human perception in conflict zones. We're thrilled to have her visiting Pitt." Read more.
