Information in the Indignation Age: Why does political media make us so angry and what should we do about it? Online

Much of the political information we see shares a common characteristic: It is designed to make you angry. In this workshop, we will consider the positive and negative consequences of media-driven political anger, both for individuals and for society as a whole. 

We will not be discussing anyone's particular political positions; instead, we will be reflecting on how anger influences the way we use information to learn about politics.
