Graduate & Postdoc Mental Health & Wellbeing: An Interview with Sherry Turkle (virtual)

April 3 @ 4:00 pm 5:30 pm

Come and hear from one of MIT’s most thought-provoking scholars. Sherry Turkle joins CAPD in an interview to discuss her graduate experience and reflect on how graduate studies have evolved, offer insight on the challenges she’s faced and those our graduate students and postdocs face today, and consider how you can maintain a healthy relationship with technology when your work depends on its use, development, and application.

Sherry Turkle is the Abby Rockefeller Mauzé Professor of the Social Studies of Science and Technology in the Program in Science, Technology, and Society at MIT, and the founding director of the MIT Initiative on Technology and Self. Professor Turkle received a joint doctorate in sociology and personality psychology from Harvard University and is a licensed clinical psychologist. Professor Turkle writes on the “subjective side” of people’s relationships with technology, especially computers. She is an expert on culture and therapy, mobile technology, social networking, and sociable robotics.

This session is targeted for graduate students and postdocs, but may also be appropriate for recent alumni and undergraduates who are thinking about pursuing their own graduate degrees.
