(wvia) - WVIA to broadcast the Bucknell Forum presentation "NextWar: Trends and Technology Shaping the 21st-century Battlefield," by Peter Warren Singer on Monday, Nov. 11 at 7 p.m. on WVIA TV.

This special television presentation was recorded as Singer, director of the Center for 21st Century Security and Intelligence and senior fellow at the Brookings Institution spoke at Bucknell University's Trout Auditorium of the Vaughan Literature Building on Tuesday, Sept. 24, 2013.

Singer is the author of 3 award-winning books, "Corporate Warriors: The Rise of the Privatized Military Industry," "Children at War" and the New York Times bestseller "Wired for War: The Robotics Revolution and Conflict in the 21st Century." He is at work on an upcoming book, "Cybersecurity and Cyberwar: What Everyone Should Know."

In his personal capacity, Singer has applied his expertise as coordinator of the Obama-08 campaign's defense policy task force, and as an adviser for a variety of technology and entertainment world projects including for Warner Brothers, Dreamworks, Universal, HBO and the Activision video game series "Call of Duty," the best selling entertainment project in history. Singer has also worked for the U.S. Department of Defense, Harvard University and the International Peace Academy.

Singer's presentation is part of the Bucknell Forum series "tech/no," which embraces technology and its perils and promises. The series aims to stir discussion about the pros and cons of technology, its benefits and damages, its legitimate promises and false panaceas, and its capacity to satisfy human need and desire even as it can bring risk and danger.
