CIVIL DISCOURSE IN AN UNCIVIL AGE: THE QUEST FOR A POST – PARTISAN CITIZENSHIP

The Faculty of Human Sciences, Macquarie University invites you to join us for a thought provoking lecture by Alexander Heffner, host of the The Open Mind on PBS.

Divisiveness today is a pervasive plague on discourse and governance. Social media proliferate clickbait, fake news and filter bubbles. Algorithms polarize information intake. So what are possible prescriptions to correct this vicious cycle? How can our digital footprint translate into prosocial rather than antisocial behavior? How can the press restore faith in the democratic process?

Where: Macquarie Theatre W2.4A, 21 Wally’s Walk, Macquarie University

Time: 6:30pm – 8:00pm
