Apocalypse Pending: Religion, Politics, and Social Media (Oct. 20th)
REGISTRATION FOR THIS EVENT IS NOW CLOSED.

We invite you to watch the livestream of the event on our YouTube page at: www.youtube.com/c/sofheyman

A panel discussion with speakers Stephanie McCurry (Columbia University) and Brandy Zadrozny (journalist), moderated by Matthew Jones (Columbia University).

October 20th, 2 PM (Eastern Time)

“Apocalypse Pending: Religion, Politics, and Social Media” explores the growing popularity of conspiracy thinking in our current moment and its place in the history of millenarian movements, particularly in the US context. It considers how new media technologies have made it possible for the dissemination of such thinking on a scale unimaginable in the past, how the moral panic it generates is impacting social and political life worldwide, and whether there are measures available to control its spread or mitigate its effects.

Sponsored by The Society of Fellows and Heyman Center for the Humanities, The Institute for Religion, Culture, and Public Life, The Brown Institute for Media Innovation, Committee on Global Thought, Columbia Global Centers, and the Columbia Center for Contemporary Critical Thought.

Owing to limited capacity for this event, we will be sending registration confirmation and a Zoom webinar access link the day before the event. If you do not receive the access link, that means we were not able to accommodate you for this event, but we will notify you should the recording later become available online.

Oct 20, 2020 02:00 PM in Eastern Time (US and Canada)
