The Media & Democracy program hosts public events that bring together academics, journalists, and technologists in conversation with the broader public to enrich conversations around the role of media and technology in public life.

Events range from book talks on the oppressive biases of algorithms to public panels on the role of race and gender in elections, and have been featured on outlets such as C-SPAN.
