Media Democracy Days

mdd2013_eblast_headerIs the Internet a revolutionary tool for social change or simply a forum for “slacktivists”? Does social media help enhance democracy or limit collective action?

To help answer these and similar questions, the CounterCulture Speaker Series proudly presents a free public debate between renowned political theorist and author of A Communist Horizon Professor Jodi Dean, and philosopher of technology Professor Andrew Feenberg on the democratic potential of the Internet.
