Featuring MIT Professor Sherry Turkle


A generation has grown up feeling that “it would rather text than talk,” along with believing that it is possible to share our attention during almost everything we do. What are the costs of a “flight from conversation” in personal life and in the work world? Most importantly, what can we do about it?


Professor, author, consultant and researcher Sherry Turkle has spent the last 30 years studying the psychology of people’s relationships with technology. She is the Abby Rockefeller Mauze Professor of the Social Studies of Science and Technology in the Program in Science, Technology and Society at MIT, as well as the founder and current director of the MIT Initiative on Technology and Self.

Copies of “Reclaiming Conversation™: The Power of Talk in the Digital Age” will be available for purchase before and after the lecture and she will sign books following the lecture. Presented by the University of Arizona’s Confluencenter for Creative Inquiry, College of Humanities, Student Affairs & Enrollment Management, School of Information and the University Libraries.
