We’re back for another edition of @Sree's Sunday #NYTReadalong. This week’s guest is Lee Clontz, Director of Teaching and Learning at Emory University. Lee is one of Sree's favorite students of all time. He knows more about digital than almost anyone Sree knows. We’ll talk about how COVID hit academia, New York Times’ coverage of the South and look at some early predictions about technology. Star Wars might come up as well.
