Hashtag CANCELED (we’re not canceling)
No we aren’t canceling this month’s discussion. Join us for our topic: “Can We Have a Courteous Conversation on Cancel Culture and Not Get #Canceled?” As the pandemic has brought about a plethora of opportunities for self-reflection, recent public discourse has seen a rise in the practice of engaging in “cancel culture.” We’ll explore this phenomenon and whether the internet, and we, are a source of accountability towards virtue or a battleground of mob mentalities. Who decides who can influence culture and who is banished from it? Should anyone be “#canceled," for what, who decides, and on what grounds? Is there redemption from cancel culture? Grab a brew, log into Zoom, share your view, and lend an ear to others .
