Description

Information in the Indignation Age: Why does political media make us so angry and what should we do about it?

Much of the political information we see shares a common characteristic: It is designed to make you angry.

In this workshop, we will consider the positive and negative consequences of media-driven political anger, both for individuals and for society as a whole.

We will not be discussing anyone's particular political positions; instead, we will be reflecting on how anger influences the way we use information to learn about politics.

This workshop is part of the University Libraries' Civic Engagement Series 2020.

The event is free and open to all.
