Reduced to Data: The Implicit Theology of Our Digitally-Driven World
Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat—increasingly, we rely on these and other social media platforms to communicate with our families, friends, and loved ones. While these technologies can enhance our interactions, they can also exploit the fears and insecurities that shape complex human relationships. How are the commercial interests behind our screens shaping who we are becoming? And how should communities of faith negotiate these contemporary dictates of the digital? Sociological analysis and theological reflection are brought together to address these key questions of our modern-day dilemmas.
Join us as we host Dr. Felicia Song, associate professor of Sociology at Westmont College in Santa Barbara, CA, as she explores these questions and more.
