The Center for Studies on Media and Society in Argentina (MESO) invites the second Meeting of the year. On this occasion, we bring you the presentation in Spanish of the latest book by our co-director Pablo J. Boczkowski entitled "Abundance: on the experience of living in a world of information plenty".
The event will take place on Wednesday, June 2, 2021 at 1:00 p.m. (Argentine time) via Zoom. It will also have the participation of Natalia Aruguete (National University of Quilmes - Conicet) and Juan Manuel Lucero (Google News Lab - Entrepreneur, professor and consultant) as commentators.
About the book, Natalí Schejtman in El Diario AR comments: "At a time when what predominates is a very dystopian discourse, the book tries to rescue the role of humans as historical subjects." Also, Marina Estarque in Latam Journalism Review points out: "Boczkowski, professor in the department of communication studies at Northwestern University, rejects the supposed dystopian effects of the increase in the supply of information and makes a historical analysis to show that this has concerned society since" ancient Greece and Rome”.
If you want to know more, we invite you to watch the presentation of “Abundance…” at the BlueMetBleu literary festival . You can also read this article of Infobae where the author reflects on" the contradictions of living in a world with too much information ".
