Human Dignity in the Age of Social Media

Panel Discussion

Monday, April 16, 2018 4:00 PM - 6:00 PM

In a number of countries worldwide, the 1930’s was characterized by an upsurge of nationalism and of ideologies and politics that reviled minorities and immigrants. These developments had significant ramifications on both the national and international level, and many historians see them now as having played a part in prompting the Second World War and the Holocaust.

The discussion on April 16 will focus on significant developments in the public sphere, and will broach the question of whether, both in the United States and internationally, we are seeing an increase in extremist behaviors and ideologies. Is history repeating itself? Is democracy under attack?

The panel will consist of: Philipp Kneis (OSU School of Public Policy); Kara Ritzheimer (School of History, Philosophy, and Religion); Benita Blessing (School of Language, Culture, and Society); and Allison Davis-White Eyes (Director, Office of Diversity & Cultural Engagement).
