Purchasing Track: Keynote with Nathan Schneider

Sponsored by Corcentric

Nathan Schneider, Scholar in Residence of Media Studies at the University of Colorado-Boulder will present the keynote address on Thursday afternoon for the Purchasing Track of IMPACT 2017. Schneider will make the case that the best way to escape the cycle of playing catch-up with the competition is to adopt innovative technologies in distinctly cooperative ways that optimize the co-op advantage.

Schneider is a reporter who writes about religion, technology and resistance. His current project is an exploration of models for democratic ownership and governance for online platforms in the wake of a major conference he co-organized at the New School in 2015, Platform Cooperativism. He is the author of two books, God in Proof: The Story of a Search from the Ancients to the Internet and Thank You, Anarchy: Notes from the Occupy Apocalypse, both published by University of California Press.

His articles have appeared in The Chronicle of Higher EducationThe New RepublicHarper’s MagazineThe NationThe Catholic WorkerReligion Dispatches and other outlets. He writes a column for America, a national Catholic weekly, as well as a finance column for Vice magazine. Media appearances have included The Takeaway, Democracy Now, On Being, HuffPost Live and The Brian Lehrer Show.

As an editor, Schneider co-founded the news website Waging Nonviolence and helped relaunch the online literary magazine Killing the Buddha. He has also helped organize projects with the Social Science Research Council about religion and media since 2008, including The Immanent Frame and Frequencies. Schneider holds two degrees in religious studies, a master’s from the University of California, Santa Barbara, and a bachelor’s degree from Brown University.
