What role has technology played in shaping the outcome of this election?
More specifically, how is social media shaping the course of history?
How did we go from “Tom is your friend” to “Tom is harvesting your data and selling it to those who wish to influence your decision making process”?
Join us for our inaugural paid members event, The Selected Salon, where we’ll be sitting down with Dr. Jen Schradie, Author of The Revolution that Wasn’t: How Digital Activism Favors Conservatives to discuss these topics and more.
Dr. Schradie will share her insights as to what and how the American election transpired, what we can learn both from it, and how iteracts with cultural shifts taking place in Europe and beyond.
This exclusive, paid-members only event will take place at 5pm CET, November 11.
As a special thank you for being a member, we’re offering five individuals a guest pass to attend, register to enter.
