Miller Center: "Feel Normal," presented by Tung-Hui Hu

Friday, December 4, 2020 - 3:30 PM
The Miller Center presents Feel Normal. Presented by Tung-Hui Hu of the University of Michigan.
This is part of the Miller Center Series on “Distance”
Tung-Hui Hu takes up newer forms of relationality online. Social scientists have argued that digital algorithms distort the way that social and public life are constituted, creating echo chambers of people who like or believe the same things, rather than authentic communities. But must ‘community’ be morally superior to solitude, disconnection, or even asocial behavior? This talk analyzes what Christine Ross has called the often-messy “contemporary downfalls of being-together.”
This event will take place virtually, via Zoom.
