Jonathan Haidt & Jason Steinhauer address the Crisis of Social Media. Moderated by: Cleo Abram

About this event
There is immense power in the distribution & delivery of information, & social media has democratized that ability so that nearly everyone has access. The scale & reach of these systems can provide platforms for social change & the tools to mobilize movements across the globe. However, this flood of knowledge is also regularly misused for darker purposes to control & confuse. So, how do we decide what power our information holds? How do we access it, evaluate it properly, & then determine how to act? How can we reclaim our autonomy when we're drowning in information?

Jonathan Haidt is a social psychologist at New York University's Stern School of Business. He received his Ph.D. from the University of Pennsylvania in 1992. Haidt's research examines the intuitive foundations of morality, & how morality varies across cultural & political divisions.
