How does technology affect or facilitate the current rise of right-wing populism? Philosopher, critic, and public intellectual Mark Kingwell will outline some features of the technological and social media landscape that make anti-democratic movements and interventions easier, and more effective. He will also investigate ways of countering these developments.
Mark Kingwell is professor of philosophy at the University of Toronto and a contributing editor of Harper’s Magazine in New York. He is the author of many books and articles on political and social theory, and lectures widely on cultural topics. His most recent book is Wish I Were Here: Boredom and the Interface (2019).
