EPL and Edmonton Community Foundation are welcoming Safiya Noble for the first Forward Thinking Speaker Series event of 2019 on February 20, 2019 the Chateau Lacombe Hotel.

Dr. Safiya Umoja Noble is an assistant professor at University of Southern California Annenberg School of Communications. Dr. Noble’s academic research focuses on the design of digital media platforms on the internet and their impact on society. Her work is both sociological and interdisciplinary, marking the ways that digital media impacts and intersects with issues of race, gender, culture, and technology design. Dr. Noble’s best-selling book on racist and sexist algorithmic bias in commercial search engines is entitled Algorithms of Oppression: How Search Engines Reinforce Racism (NYU Press, 2018).

Tickets will go on sale for EPL cardholders starting at 10am on Wednesday, January 9 for $10. There will also be limited $75 Preffered Seating tickets available. All proceeds from the event will support the Stanley A. Milner Library revitalization project.

The Forward Thinking Speaker Series reflects EPL’s rich history of taking risks, trying new things out and redefining the modern library. EPL is inviting thought-leaders from a variety of industries and around a variety of topics to share their insights, ideas, experiences and viewpoints, with the goal of helping us purposefully build better organizations, neighborhoods and communities.
