Dietram Scheufele: The Brave New World of Media – Nov. 20

Life sciences communication professor Dietram Scheufele will speak on “The Brave New World of Media: How We All Make Sense of Information in Online News Environments” at a UW Showcase event held on Nov 20 from 7-8 p.m. at the Capital Lakes Retirement Community.

Here’s a brief description of the talk: We live in a world where we can get all the news we need in just a few keystrokes. Yet, many of us live in our own filter bubbles that allow us to only hear what we already believe in. This exciting talk will explore this strange paradigm and suggest some possible solutions.
