Fueling Extremism in a Wired World
Public Program

Nazis used radio; today’s extremists use social media. Then as now, new technology provides extremists with unchecked ability to spread hate and prey upon  disenfranchised audiences to realize their deadly agenda. This event will explore the tension between protecting free speech and limiting incendiary propaganda. What responsibility do technology companies, governments, and individuals have to limit uses of technology to keep our world safe?

Speakers
Dr. Steven Corman, Director, Center for Strategic Communication, Arizona State University
Mouafac Harb, Independent Media and Political Consultant and former News Director, The Middle East Radio Network
Dr. Steven Luckert, Senior Program Curator, Digital Learning and New Media

Moderator
Janine Zacharia, Carlos Kelly McClatchy Visiting Lecturer, Stanford University

Co-presented with Arizona State University and Scottsdale Community College
