Author Gives Talk on Constant Presence of Technology and Its Effect on Society

A crowded Hogan Ballroom awaits to hear from MIT Professor Sherry Turkle, who gave a talk based on her new book, “Alone Together: Why we expect more from technology and less from each other.”

As a professor, author, researcher, and licensed clinical psychologist, Turkle spoke on the social implications of technology, a topic she has studied for the last 30 years. In light of the author’s discussion and as part of the Montserrat program, all first-year students will take part in a technology-free day on Feb. 17.

After the talk, Turkle met with students and signed copies of her book, which explores the complex relationships people have with technology in our digital age.
