PRECEPT:  DIGITAL CITIZEN: ENGAGING LOCALLY & GLOBALLY IN A CHANGING TOWN SQUARE SEPTEMBER 26, 2017


The Princeton Club of Chicago invites you to join Rishi Jaitly '04 for a discussion on the role technology and media are playing in our rapidly-changing, and sometimes unrecognizable, town square.  

If the last several years have taught us anything, it's that the mobile Internet has become the mass communication medium of choice for protagonists across our culture; and the impact this shift has had on our politics, on business and on entertainment is undeniable. 

But what about the role of citizen? How have digital technologies shaped citizenship itself -- and our ability to see, expand and nurture our shared civic identity? What bottoms-up potential have we yet to unlock as digital citizens - here and everywhere?
