The Technology and Culture
Forum at MIT sponsors
lectures and symposia that
address critical issues of
our time. The programs

“The Forum has played a
highly constructive role
in bringing critical issues
to the attention of the
campus and the community, and fostering
discussion and active
engagement. For me
personally, it has been a
great privilege to be able
to participate over the
years, occasions I always
look forward to with

SOME QUESTIONS WE'RE THINKING ABOUT: 2013-2014
What happens in our brains when we think about people we consider enemies? Can we truly love our enemies?
How will we be affected by the increasing shortage of fresh drinking water? Is access to water a human right?
Who owns our genes, or the genes of the plants and animals we eat? What do the recent Supreme Court decisions about gene patenting mean for our lives?
Do new methods of online accessing of music, video, film and other intellectual and artistic property create an unfair compensatory environment?
What’s on your mind? We’d love to hear from you about the questions that matter in your life.
