New York, NY 10014

Remember when we first dreamed that the digital revolution would spread democracy to all corners of the earth? The actual dynamics of the internet have proven far less utopian, and more troubling. Cutting-edge technologies have empowered activists and facilitated free speech, but these same technological innovations have also helped despots strangle dissent in their countries and sway international elections. Has the internet, once seen as the frontier of free expression, become corrupted forever by tyrannical forces? Is technology’s openness the very reason democracy is so vulnerable? And as online communications become increasingly weaponized, how do we preserve our physical and digital freedoms? Join Recode co-founder Kara Swisher, Danielle Citron, and Sue Halpern as they examine the fate and future of democracy in the digital age. Co-hosted by The Cooper Union Office of Continuing Education and Public Programs
