Event description

Description

Alexander Heffner, Co-Author, A Documentary History of the United States; Host of “The Open Mind,” PBS

Divisiveness today is a pervasive plague on discourse and governance. Social media proliferate clickbait, misinformation and filter bubbles. Algorithms polarize information intake. So what are possible prescriptions to correct this vicious cycle? How can our increasingly digital footprint translate into prosocial instead of antisocial behavior? How can an historically knowledgeable press restore faith in our civic life, democracy and humanity? Alexander Heffner will discuss these issues, bringing an open mind. Be sure to bring yours too.
