“Conscience for the tech world” Sherry Turkle Wins USC Annenberg’s Everett M. Rogers Award


Often referred to as “the Margaret Mead of digital culture,” and called a “conscience for the tech world” by novelist Jonathan Franzen in the New York Times Book Review, Professor Turkle studies the effects on human relationships of digital technology, including the personal computer, social networks, mobile connectivity and artificial intelligence. She has described technology as the “architect of our intimacies,” and her work has explored how digital communication devices affect the ways we understand ourselves, relate to others and experience our humanity.
