Presented by Eric Pierson, PhD | Professor, Communication Studies

Black Mirror is among the most critically-acclaimed and thought-provoking shows on television, regularly exploring the intersection of technology and the human condition. What happens when the things that make us human, such as empathy, memory, mourning, love, fear, and compassion, merge with technology? Each session will include the screening of an episode and a panel discussion featuring faculty from across disciplines. We invite the community to come and engage in Reflections in the Black Mirror.
