The Phil Lind Initiative
The Phil Lind Initiative is hosted by the School of Public Policy and Global Affairs in the Faculty of Arts at the University of British Columbia. The initiative’s mandate is to invite prominent U.S. scholars, writers, and intellectuals to UBC to share ideas with students, faculty, and the wider community on some of the most urgent issues of our time.
The Future of Media series, held from January to April, 2022 at UBC Vancouver, explored how media is at a crossroads and asked how we can reshape the media landscape in the face of major challenges to better society. Public events featured leading journalists and authors including Douglas Rushkoff, Soledad O’Brien, Kara Swisher, and Ed Yong.
