Hi All,

"QuickBites: a Forum on Urgent News"
 is a new initiative sponsored by San José State University's H&A in 
Action, H&A in San Jose, and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Library, to 
bring you informal conversations about the most urgent news 
of the moment. Each month, two faculty from the College of Humanities 
and the Arts at San José State University will dive into an informal 
conversation about a specific news article, post, or video. We welcome 
registrants to submit questions in advance.

Join us for the inaugural conversation on November 17, 2021 @ 5pm PST 
as Étienne Brown (Philosophy) and Chelsea Thompto (Digital Media Art) 
talk about New York Times Facebook Papers and what this whistleblower 
reveals about how Facebook allows content that seriously affects body 
image in teens, promotes hateful content, spreads election disinformation, 
and many other dilemmas in many countries, including the U.S. and India,
specifically on Instagram and WhatsApp. Send us your questions about this 
social media giant and how these revelations may affect you and your friends. 

Register (free and open to the public) to join us for the live-stream and submit
your questions.

Please feel free to share with your communities. We hope to see you there
and at future QuickBites.

All best,

Dr. Katherine D. Harris (she/her)
