With a focus on building community and thoughtful discussion, we will explore the unfolding debate around transparency, secrecy, leaks, and morality.

Though it continues the series of Harvard faculty events at the Ed Portal, this evening will be a first step in creating something new: Allston X at the Ed Portal. Rather than one-way presentation of information or knowledge, as in classic lectures or the new Ed X on-line course model, Allston X hopes to create a face-to-face interactive discussion-based model that would off-set the top-down model of information flow. In this way Wednesday's event should be an exciting prototype for future efforts to deepen and improve the on-line educational model.
Come to the event to engage in small-group discussions about the pertinent questions raised by the disclosures of Edward Snowden.
