And this is just the beginning, as digital innovation continues apace and new opportunities emerge, for business, politics and society. What will the future look like? To think about this, we must examine both technical and social processes of change and get better at understanding how these might work together to shape alternative futures.

Tom Sperlinger (Professor of Literature and Engaged Pedagogy and Academic Lead for the University of Bristol's Temple Quarter Enterprise Campus)
We live in an era of increasing technological change and of rapid changes in the organisation of human society but individuals are participating in these changes in different ways.

In this talk, Professor Tom Sperlinger, author of "Who are universities for?" will talk about how the University of Bristol’s new Temple Quarter Campus will address some of these issues, and the role universities can play in imagining alternative – and shared – futures.
