Event description
Anthony Angelini hosts a compelling talk titled "Amusing Ourselves to Death - The Threat posed by a Dumbed Down Media"

About this Event

This lecture focuses on the superficial nature of the media we consume. This tendency towards shallowness and simplicity contributes to a hyper-partisan, overly emotional political landscape, making compromise more difficult to achieve. The issues facing the world at large: climate change, income inequality, poverty and immigration; are highly complex and require a medium of communication which is focused on informing an audience, rather than merely entertaining it. Thus, the dumbing down of media has negative connotations for our politics and society in general.
