Cathy N. Davidson
Cathy N. Davidson, Professor of English and Interdisciplinary Studies at Duke University, discusses and signs her latest book, Now You See It: How the Brain Science of Attention Will Transform the Way We Live, Work, and Learn. Using cutting-edge research on the brain, Davidson shows how "attention blindness" has shaped our lives and produced one of our society’s great challenges: incorporating the digital age into our outdated schools and workplaces. Now You See It is an optimistic argument for a bold embrace of our connected, collaborative future.
This event is presented in partnership with the Illinois Science Council.
