As the inauguration draws ever closer, tweets and comments loom larger and larger. Today's post was adapted from an op-ed piece written by MIT Professor Emeritus Aron Bernstein and appeared in The Hill on January 12, 2017.

Climate Change: Ethics in Action, the large forum that Radius co-hosted on November 17th, has provided a robust launch for further action at MIT. We've received many emails following the program and the subsequent article published in The Tech on November 22.
This Thursday at 5:15, we have a great opportunity to show that the MIT community cares deeply about the ethics of climate change. This is a chance to dive deeply into these issues with other members of the MIT community and discuss how MIT can be involved in solving the catastrophic effects of climate change.
Social Innovation and Ethical Reflection
Monday, October 31, 2016
Radius (and the Technology and Culture Forum) has a long tradition of partnering with a wide array of departments and programs here at MIT. These partnerships have enriched our programming and widen our reach to members of the MIT community and beyond.
One of our most robust partnerships is with the Priscilla King Gray Public Service Center. From encouraging MIT community members to volunteer locally to assisting in creating programs that help students think about ethical frameworks in their lives, our relationship with the PKGCenter is rich one.
Cut Through the Noise
Monday, October 17, 2016
Scandals, large and small, and devisive rhetoric have dominated the presidential election. Cogent and thoughtful discussion on critical issues has been swept to the side. To get beyond the noise of Twitter and “fast food” media, we invite you to attend a number of events on campus focusing on the election and the election process, and to take time to read perspectives offered by twelve professors and researchers from the School of Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences (HASS).
Hack Your Mind is Back!

Greetings! My name is Paul McAlister and I am a 3rd year divinity student at the Episcopal Divinity School in Harvard Square. As an intern for Radius and the Episcopal Ministry at MIT, I’ve had the opportunity to meet many MIT community members, particularly professors and staff who are involved in program ideas for Radius.
From A Different Perspective
Tuesday, September 27, 2016
Considering different perspectives from various lenses can be eye-opening and fascinating. Last Thursday, we hosted a "Radius Goes to the Theater" event at the Central Square Theater. The Return to Morality was a thought-provoking play about the underbelly of politics, media and greed. I'm still thinking about the issues that the play raised, particularly after watching the presidential debate last evening.
The Return to Morality
Monday, September 19, 2016
On Thursday, Radius Goes to the Theater to see Jamie Pachino’s The Return to Morality. The play tells the tale of a down and out writer, Arthur Kellogg, who decides to write a satire about the fringe right wing of American politics. The book becomes a stunning success for all the wrong reasons. He's suddenly a hero to America's angry, disaffected classes.
