Is social media changing your life?

7:30pm-9:00pm on Monday 22 March

Times shown are in GMT (UTC +0) up to the 27th March. For events on or after 28th March times are in BST (UTC +1).

Since the onset of the worldwide pandemic, it seems that our lives have become more intertwined with social media than ever before. In a locked down world where physical proximity may not be even possible, social media often presents a lifeline to the rest of the world. How much of an effect do our daily social media habits have in our everyday lives? The apps that we check throughout the day influence how and where we receive news and information, who we spend time with, what we buy, and ultimately even how we think and feel. But what if we have more control over these aspects than we might assume?

This panel will provide a range of perspectives and areas of expertise - Tyler Shores (Jesus College Intellectual Forum), James Williams (author and winner of the Nine Dots Prize), and Amy Orben (Neuroscience) – in a discussion that will help us to think through what role everyday technology should have within our lives, our sense of self, and how we relate to the rest of the world.
