Down The Social Media Rabbit Hole

Chantel hebertA couple of years ago, Toronto Star national affairs columnist Chantel Hebert (pictured) was in town to deliver James Minifie Lecture that the School of Journalism sponsors each year.

On Wednesday April 15, Hebert will be in town to deliver the 2015 Tansley Lecture hosted by the Johnson Shoyama Graduate School of Public Policy. The title of her talk is “Down the Social Media Rabbit Hole”, and here’s a brief synopsis from the University of Regina website:

With the advent of a wired world, what is the impact on the connection between the media, public policy makers and voters? Are we on the cusp of a golden information era or do we just talk a lot more and listen a lot less?

The lecture is being held at the Ramada Hotel as part of a dinner that JSGS hosts each year. Cocktails are at 5 p.m., and tickets are Adults $55 and Students $30. You can find out more information on the university website.
