Reckoning With Social Media: Where Do We Go From Here?

New York May 3, 2023 at 6:00 pm ET Public Event

Social media is experiencing a moment of change: TikTok bans may be coming, Twitter’s users are shifting and departing, and Facebook’s workforce is dwindling. All the while, new alternatives emerge and generative AI is rapidly developing.

Social media has reshaped society, for better and worse. It has been particularly challenging for the institutions – including universities – that make meaning and build knowledge. Can we do better? Can we use social technologies to make us smarter, wiser, and less polarized?

Join us as Jonathan Haidt converses with a panel of experts including Aviv Ovadya, Christine Rosen, and Sinead Bovell.
