89: Substantive Stories | Restless Devices with Dr. Felicia Wu Song

Felicia Song is an author, Westmont College professor, and cultural sociologist who studies the place of digital technologies in contemporary life. Having trained in History, Communication Studies and Sociology from Yale, Northwestern, and University of Virginia, her research is oriented around the rapidly evolving digital technology industry and how the adoption of social media and digital devices fundamentally alters the landscapes of family, community, and organizational life. This week she joins us to talk about that work and her book Restless Devices: Recovering Personhood, Presence, and Place in the Digital Age (IVP). The books two main focal points are the questions: What kind of people are we becoming with personal technologies in hand? And who do we really want to be? We hope you enjoy our conversation with Felicia! Feel free to call or email with feedback, and if you enjoy it, the best way to help us is to share it with the people you know.
