The Institute for Public Knowledge invites you to join us for a discussion with Fred Turner and Clay Shirky on Turner’s new book The Democratic Surround, in which he reveals that the decades that brought us the Korean War and communist witch hunts also witnessed an extraordinary turn toward explicitly democratic, open, and inclusive ideas of communication and with them new, flexible models of social order. Surprisingly, he shows that it was this turn that brought us the revolutionary multimedia and the wild-eyed individualism of the 1960s counterculture.Click here for more free New York City events & things to do.
