Speaker – Matthew Flisfeder
Tuesday, February 23
2:00pm – 3:00pm

Dr. Matthew Flisfeder will speak on The Bias of Communication? How Crisis Times Put the “Social” Back into Social Media. Dr. Flisfeder is Associate Professor of Rhetoric and Communications at the University of Winnipeg, where he teaches courses on Contemporary Communication Theory and Critical Studies of Social Media. In this presentation, Dr. Flisfeder will show that, despite the woes of surveillance and control, our uses of social technologies, such as Zoom, during the Covid pandemic, teach us more about the culture in which we live, and the powerful interests that organize its structure and expropriate our need to be social.
