According to Stanford professor Fred Turner, Donald Trump is a typically American form of authoritarianism that fits perfectly in our Media Era. His ability to use horizontal and equalitarian media to have them celebrate a narcissistic individualism is the novelty of his campaign.
On November 8, the day of the Presidential Election in the United States, Fred Turner will hold a conference at Sciences Po Paris. He has spent years analysing the history of multimedia and of the internet, which he will discuss from its democratic use and the hippie utopia to the dangerous use of it we witness today.
After working as a journalist in Boston and teaching at Harvard or the MIT, Fred Turner is Chair of the Department of Communication at Stanford University. He is the author of two reference works about the history of internet and multimedia.
Introduction by Sylvain Bourmeau, journalist.
Moderation by Dominique Cardon, Associate Professor of sociology, médialab Sciences Po
