Episode details

Situated amid political communication theory, social media information economics, and the vanguard of social science methodology, Kevin Munger (Assistant Professor of Political Science and Social Data Analytics at Penn State University) visits NM to share his post-2010s framework for understanding the future of networked culture.

Kevin is the author of Generation Gap: Why the Baby Boomers Still Dominate American Politics and Culture (Columbia U. Press, 2022). And on this new ep, he discusses media technology’s role in the migration of big organizing concepts such as conservative, liberal, autonomy, and progress; as well as how technological change, which is inevitable, impacts the very foundations of literate/liberal culture.

Bonus: Excerpt from Vilém Flusser's 1986-92 Artforum column, "Curie’s Children"
