Agenda

Please join Women in Engineering for this month's book, Reclaiming Conversation: The Power of Talk in a Digital Age.

We live in a technological universe in which we are always communicating. And yet we have sacrificed conversation for mere connection.
 
Preeminent author and researcher Sherry Turkle has been studying digital culture for over thirty years. Long an enthusiast for its possibilities, here she investigates a troubling consequence: at work, at home, in politics, and in love, we find ways around conversation, tempted by the possibilities of a text or an email in which we don’t have to look, listen, or reveal ourselves. ~ Amazon Books
 



“A timely wake-up call urging us to cherish the intimacy of direct, unscripted communication.”  ~ Kirkus
