Because our goal is to send you home from conference bursting with new ideas and knowledge, we’re featuring something special each day—a BIG idea. These are ideas and messages that can impact and empower the way you think, act, and work.
Sherry Turkle has spent the last 30 years studying the psychology of people’s relationships with technology. She is the Abby Rockefeller Mauzé Professor of the Social Studies of Science and Technology at MIT. A licensed clinical psychologist, she is the founder and director of the MIT Initiative on Technology and Self.
Turkle is the author five books and three edited collections, including a trilogy of three landmark studies on our relationship with digital culture: The Second Self, Life on the Screen, and most recently, Alone Together.
A recipient of a Guggenheim and Rockefeller Humanities Fellowship, she is a featured media commentator and a Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.
This Big Ideas session will be captioned for our deaf and hard of hearing attendees.
PLA thanks Penguin for its support of this event.
