MCDM and the Seattle Arts and Lecture series teamed up for five vibrant conversations about digital media and our world’s communication ecosystem.
David Domke, Chair of the UW Department of Communication, presented “You Say You Want A Revolution? Generational Change and Citizen Engagement.”
This was his focus: “Technological developments and impacts do not occur in isolation. When television arrived, it both crystallized the new superpower status of the United States (“that country can do anything”) and extended the American cultural sensibility far wider and deeper than any military might could do. So too do the advent of 24/7 digital media shape how we understand and engage with society — including what we think comes with the job of being a citizen. This talk will discuss how this is becoming apparent in generational changes among Americans.”
