How Did We Become a Troll Nation and What Can Humanists Do About It? 

Are you tired of platforms that give trolls outsized influence? The digital is cultural and it has gotten ugly. Join us for a conversation about what humanists can contribute to a re-imagining of digital platforms. Kamilah Taylor and Daniel Burke, co-founders of Swaay, a start-up in development dedicated to rebuilding digital platforms to encourage thoughtful exchange, and a panel of faculty and journalists will talk to you and with you about their fascinating work and the challenges they are encountering.

High Stakes Culture” is a series of panels organized by the Institute for the Humanities and the Humanities Collaboratory in response to dramatic, impassioned public debates about culture that matters outside of the academy now. Join the conversation!
