Miriam Posner: Seeing Like a Supply Chain

Miriam Posner: Seeing Like a Supply Chain

Miriam PosnerWe're used to getting almost anything at almost anytime, as long as we're willing to pay. And most of us are aware that many things we buy come from far away. But how do companies make this happen? And what can that tell us about the world we live in? This presentation discusses the origins and current state of supply-chain management (SCM), the discipline that moves goods across the world. It focuses specifically on the technology behind SCM, explaining how a specific vision of global economics is embedded in software and data.

A reception will follow the lecture. This event is being sponsored by the University Libraries and two Carolina Seminars: Humanities, Data, and Technology and New Directions in Film Studies. Questions? Contact Amanda Henley.
