After the phenomenal success of Professor Sherry Turkle’s TED talk, the Ego Media Projectand the Centre for Digital Culture at King’s College London are delighted to annouce that they will be co-hosting an event with the internationally-esteemed media scholar. The talk will be based on Prof Turkle’s newest book, the New York Times bestseller, Reclaiming Conversation: The Power of Talk in a Digital Age (Penguin Press, October 2015), which investigates how a flight from conversation undermines our relationships, creativity, and productivity.

Professor Turkle is the Abby Rockefeller Mauzé Professor of the Social Studies of Science and Technology in the Program in Science, Technology, and Society at MIT, and the founder (2001) and current director of the MIT Initiative on Technology and Self.  Professor Turkle received a joint doctorate in sociology and personality psychology from Harvard University and is a licensed clinical psychologist.  Professor Turkle writes on the “subjective side” of people’s relationships with technology, especially computers.  She is an expert on culture and therapy, mobile technology, social networking, and sociable robotics.
