For the last Coffee Talk of 2018, SpokaneFāVS panelists will discuss The Echo Chamber, why it’s problematic and how people can break free of them.
The term Echo Chamber is widely used today to describe situations where ideas or beliefs are reinforced through repetition in a closed system, not allowing for the free movement of alternative or competing concepts.
It’s a major and growing problem, according to scholars.
“The echo chamber may be comforting, but ultimately it locks us into perpetual tribalism, and does tangible damage to our understanding,” a columnist wrote in The Guardian.
Coffee Talk panelists will be:
- Cassy Benefield, an Evangelical columnist who wrote “Why I Don’t Have the Post-Election Blues“
- Jeff Borders, a Latter-day Saint columnist who wrote, “We Need To Bridge The Divide“
- Emily Geddes, FāVS COO who just returned from the Parliament of the Worlds Religions
- Professor Kristina Morehouse from Gonzaga, who has written and presented about ‘fake news’
The discussion will be at Saturday, 10 a.m.,at Saranac Commons, 19 W. Main Ave.
