    Event Description

    In recent times, popular figures have lost their livelihoods due to being "cancelled" by the internet. We've all seen musicians, beauty gurus, actors, and athletes encounter their past mistakes through "cancelling". But what does "cancelling" really mean? Is it the job of the internet to take away the livelihoods of others? Can people truthfully claim "I'm not the same person I used to be"? Have we gone too far? Do we need to go further? For a topic so heavily mentioned on the internet, there seems to be a lack of clarity around the topic. We'd love to hear what you think Wednesday, Sept. 30 2020 7-8pm
