The NULab is delighted to announce our 2019 fall calendar of events. We have some very exciting talks, workshops, and other events planned for the semester, organized around our year-long focus on “technologies of democracy.” You can find additional details and registration information for these events at

These events are free and open to the public but some require registration. Guests from outside the Northeastern community who wish to attend NULab-hosted events should RSVP to Sarah Connell at sa.connell[at]northeastern[dot]edu.

We hope to see you this fall!
