Technology, Solitude, and Fame
November 18, 2017
Dudley H. Davis Center
In this breakout discussion, we will explore technology’s role at the intersection of fame and solitude. How do the technologies of publication that create modern fame—be they internet or print-based—transform lives that require solitude? Our touchstones will be Thomas Merton, Jack Kerouac, Colson Whitehead, Viet Nguyen, and Marilyn Robinson.
