Ed Quinn, MIT Spectrum
Join MPC for an illuminating Urban Think & Drink with Rutgers University Professor Keith Hampton. Professor Hampton will share his research on how technology and digital networks have changed our interactions with each other and our cities. From helping behavior to a comparison between today's public behavior and the archives of William Whyte, join us for a discussion on whether technology may actually increase our use of public space. Professor Hampton's research has received recognition and support from organizations including the American Sociological Association, Pew Research Center, Google and Project for Public Spaces.
Come and enjoy great company, refreshments and lively conversation, as we explore these issues and more.
The program will begin at 5:30 p.m., with time to mingle before and after.
Beer, wine and snacks will be provided. MPC thanks Goose Island Beer Company for libations.
Space is limited, so RSVP today!
