We text, tweet, snap, and chat all day, but are we ever engaging in meaningful conversation? Our constant social digital engagement can prevent us from feeling alone, but are we truly connected?
In her new book, Reclaiming Conversation: The Power of Talk in the Digital Age, media scholar Sherry Turkle deplores the consequences of our excessive reliance on tech devices to communicate.
On Wednesday, Oct. 7, at 6:30 p.m., Future Tense will host a conversation in New York between Sherry Turkle and Slate staff writer Amanda Hess on how best to connect in the digital age.
Copies of Reclaiming Conversation will be available for purchase. For more information and to RSVP, visit the New America website.
