Can Grace Survive in the Digital Age?

Mar 12, 2017

3:30pm – 4:30pm CT

Being graceful, or being more at ease in the world, is a notion that likely appeals to us all. This is especially true in the always connected, always-on world we live in. But can grace thrive in an age of instant responses, bombastic communications, online harassment, and polarization? This session will explore the very notion of grace and how it is embodied in our everyday life, both online and off. It will examine ways that thoughtful design and technical decisions can promote community and enhance civil engagement. And it will address how grace can help humanize technology and how everyone can live more gracefully in the digital age.
