Can Facebook and Twitter make us better citizens? Is social networking
effective as political involvement? How can social networks lead to social
and political change in a digital era? Is sharing your opinion or making a
donation the same thing as civic engagement?
To explore these questions and more, join a faculty panel and your peers at
SLinkSlam for a forum on "Social Networking, Political Advocacy and
Citizenship in a Digital Age."
When: Wednesday, February 24, at 3:30pm
Where: SMI 120
Lance Bennett, Political Science & Communication,
Kirsten Foot, Communication,
Hanson Hosein, Masters of Communication in Digital Media Program
