Warrior Geeks

LSE IDEAS Book Launch

Thursday 2 May 2013, 6.30-8.00pm, Wolfson Theatre, New Academic Building
Speaker: Professor Christopher Coker; Chair: Professor Arne Westad

In his latest book Christopher Coker explains how the latest technologies are transforming the face of war.  We are folding men into a cybernetic system that will be able to read their thoughts as well as monitor their actions. On the battlefields of tomorrow men and machines will co-exist in an uneasy relationship. Are we in danger of losing touch with our humanity – the name we give not only to a species but the qualities it is deemed to embody? In revaluing technology are we devaluing our own humanity?



Christopher Coker| is Professor of International Relations at the London School of Economics and Head of Department. 




Professor Arne Westad| is Director of LSE IDEAS.
