Spinning Out of ConTROLL: Let’s Get Reel @ Michener Library

6:30 PM - 8:30 PM

Event Details

“Don't feed the trolls; nothing fuels them so much,” said Oscar Wilde.  Are the media spinning out of conTROLL?  Take a “spin” with UNC Professors from Communication Studies, Economics, and Journalism and Media Studies for a reeling discussion of how news is portrayed and its impact on our attitudes and actions.

You are invited to explore with us the interplay of economics, emotion, imagination, and ethos as we seek information to make daily decisions, from the mundane to the monumental.
