    Contemporary Matters | Media & Democracy

    In a world where information is ever increasingly democratized, the strength of democracy in many democratic nations is in peril. Through discourse in this Contemporary Matters Lunch, PPRI aims to explore the factors contributing to this phenomenon and uncover connections in work across disciplines that might align well to further explore and/or address these issues, particularly through technological or regulatory practices. A panel of scholars will share their view of media and democracy through the lens of their discipline and body of work. After their brief remarks, the discussion will open to the room. This event is intended for faculty and graduate students, but is open to all.
