Listen to the presentation via Minnesota Public Radio.

Sherry Turkle, author of Reclaiming Conversation: The Power of Talk in a Digital Age and Alone Together: Why We Expect More from Technology and Less from Each Other, has argued that as technology ramps up, our emotional lives ramp down. Academy members joined her for a conversation with David Oxtoby about how our ability to empathize is transforming as much of our lives move online due to the COVID-19 crisis.
