All are invited to attend the Second Annual Lewis College Roundtable: Digital Discourse and Civil Society on Thursday, October 13 from 3:30-5 p.m. in The McCormick Tribune Campus Center (MTCC) Auditorium. Invited scholars from the field of digital ethics, social psychology, gaming, and communications will participate in a 90-minute discussion to explore what constitutes a civil society in the digital age.
How can we promote ethical behavior and social good in the digital space? Has the Internet fostered more extreme viewpoints on controversial issues? Does the perceived anonymity in the digital space increase bullying and toxicity in online communities? Are the rules of etiquette and civility different online?
Join us as we discuss these questions and more at the next roundtable. A reception celebrating the 40th anniversary of the Center for the Study of Ethics in the Professions will follow in The MTCC Ballroom. This event is free and open to the public.
