Presidential Debate — This House Believes Social Media is Anti-social

Join us for the Presidential Debate, where the outgoing Union committee will handover to the new committee! The debate will explore whether social media is truly as social as it can be in design and effect. With more communication online than face to face, and the prevalence of social media in elections, this debate relates to everyone and how we communicate with the world.

Proposition:

Page Nyame-Satterthwaite — Finalist reading Law at Christ's College and the outgoing Michaelmas 2017 President.

Miriyam Aouragh — A Dutch anthropologist who specialises in social media and internet activism, especially in the Middle East.

Glenn Brown — Chief Digital Officer of the Obama Foundation

Opposition:

Judith Donath — A fellow at Harvard's Berkman Centre, and the founder of the Sociable Media Group at the MIT Media Lab.

Adnan Sawar — The Economist's Community Editor, working in the social media team

Susie Hargreaves — Chief Executive of the Internet Watch Foundation

Rosette Pambakian — Head of Marketing and Communications at Tinder
