Breaking the “Internet Bubble”
Wednesday, April 5 | 6:30 PM | ICP School
A panel discussion on the effects of the “Internet bubble” – how and why we tend to both consume and share media that confirms our pre-existing biases
In the months following the 2016 election, the phenomena of the “Internet bubble” has quickly become well-documented. Writers, thinkers, and cultural producers have wondered aloud: “why in a robust, prolific information environment do we consume and share out media that confirms our preexisting biases?” This program is a live exploration of this issue and, more importantly, a forum for discussing solutions on how to bridge our nation’s divide and use art, storytelling, and visual analysis to exit our own echo chambers. Panelists Hilary Swift, Jon Keegan, Vicki Boykis and Amanda Hess (Moderator).
