Surviving in the Wired World 

When: Wed., Nov. 1, 7 p.m. 2017
Price: Free and open to the public.
In this lecture, Alan Lightman discusses the way in which much of modern technology has created a virtual reality that has robbed us of immediate experience with the world and has also contributed to an increasing pace of life that prevents us from much-needed personal reflection. He discusses ways to adapt to our technological society while preserving our humanity. This talk draws from Lightman’s published articles on technology and also from his novel "The Diagnosis," which was a finalist for the National Book Award. Event Location: Building 6 - Lair Auditorium
