Technology as the Architect of our Intimacies, Sherry Turkle

06 September 2011, 17:00 to 18:00
Banatao Auditorium, Sutardja Dai Hall, UC Berkeley

Technology is the architect of our intimacies. How does the culture of always-on/always-on-you connection give shape to new relationships and sensibilities, and beyond this, to a new state of the self, itself.

Sherry Turkle is a professor, author, consultant, researcher and licensed clinical psychologist who has spent the last 30 years researching the psychology of people’s relationships with technology. She is the Abby Rockefeller Mauzé Professor of the Social Studies of Science and Technology in the Program in Science, Technology, and Society at MIT, and founder and current director of the MIT Initiative on Technology and Self, a center of research and reflection on the evolving connections between people and artifacts.
