Smart Cities Brown Bag Series: The Role of Social Media in Shaping Our Perceptions of Society
OCTOBER 16, 2019
The Role of Social Media in Shaping Our Perceptions of Safety
Dr. Aubri McDonald
Social media increases our awareness of what's going on in the world but it can also generate unwarranted fears about victimization. From crime alert texts to tweets about the latest mass shooting, social media engagement can threaten our sense of security and alter the way we interact with others.
The Smart Cities vernacular has become a prolific phrase in our community over the last year. Join us to consider the various issues raised by the development of wired and integrated cities. We offer a general education course, CPS 103 - Introduction to Smart Cities, which includes and encourages community participation at weekly brown bag lunches. These events are free and open to the public. You do not need to register or sign-up ahead of time--feel free to just show up!
