Reading in the Age of Distraction

We seem to read more words per day than ever before. We read our Facebook feeds, binge on news tweets, skim through the web and pore over text messages. Yet, we have lost the ability to truly lose ourselves in the words of writers. Deep and focused reading is a lost art in the digital age. Join us to have a conversation with leading international thinkers to gain tips and insights on reading well in the age of distraction.

 

Speakers include Nicholas Carr, author of The Shallows: What the Internet is doing to our Brains, Rolf Dobeli, author of The Art of Thinking Clearly, Alan Rusbridger, former Editor-in-Chief of The Guardian and Maryanne Wolf, author of Reader Come Home: The Reading Brain in a Digital World.

 

Sat, 23 and 30 Jan 2021
