2018-19 Whiting Public Engagement Seed Grant given to the Museums and Civic Discourse Project

The project “Museums and Civic Discourse: History, Current Practice, and Future Prospects” has received a 2018-19 Whiting Public Engagement Seed Grant from the Whiting Foundation’s Humanities Program, which supports faculty in the humanities who embrace public engagement as part of the scholarly vocation. The project’s research focuses on the fact that while the 20th century marks museums’ gradual entrée into intentional civic discourse work, there is no critical accounting of this history, no scholarly overview to contextualize and inform current deliberations over future paths that museum work in this area might take.

Guest Lecturer – Tech Ethicist, David Ryan Polgar – “All Tech Is Human: Improving Social Media to Benefit User Wellbeing & Society”

Tuesday, April 3, 2018
12:30 p.m. – 1:45 p.m.
Jaime Homero Arjona (ARJ) building, Room 225

Is social media bad for user wellbeing and society at large? 2017 was the year of a backlash against Silicon Valley for their potential connection with misinformation and tech addiction. David Ryan Polgar has carved a unique career as a tech ethicist, where he explores the impact of social media & tech from ethical, legal, and emotional perspectives. In this lecture, he will take us into a deep dive into the tension between the business interests of Silicon Valley (eyeballs and engagement) and the human interests of users (trustworthy information, increasing happiness). Can’t tech companies profit while also operating to benefit users & society?
