Humanities Week 2019 - "Log In!"

April 1, 2019

WHY LOG IN?

Facebook. Twitter. Instagram. Podcasts. Gaming. Texting. Email. Spotify. Tinder. Google. Snapchat. 

 

In recent decades, the use of social media and digital technologies has seamlessly and stealthily sneaked into our daily lives in ways we can no longer imagine living without – infiltrating and forever changing the way we shop, play, learn, and communicate.
 

The IHGC’s Humanities Week 2019’s theme, “Log In” encourages students, faculty, and guests to explore how digital technologies and social media consciously and unconsciously inform and impact our lives through our art, communications, relationships, music, technology, information sharing, organizing and more.
