United We Stand Summit (Virtual)

July 16 @ 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM


In today’s world, media is omnipresent – permeating our lives through television, radio, the internet, and social platforms. Its influence is undeniable, shaping our cultural and personal realities, reinforcing or challenging stereotypes, and making the private available for public consumption. Media, especially social media, has the power to create connections, impact our emotions, or sow hatred within communities. Perhaps due to its accessibility, individuals and communities often consume media content uncritically, sometimes leading to positive change, but at other times, with alarming consequences.

Maryland Humanities is creating a space to delve into the nuances of how people interact with various forms of media, from traditional outlets to emerging digital platforms. Additionally, we want to explore its influence on our bodies and mental health. We are convening a two-day event: a virtual session on Tuesday, July 16, via the Qiqo Chat platform, followed by an in-person gathering on Wednesday, July 17, at the Newton White Mansion.

REGISTER HERE for the virtual summit day 1.

Tuesday, July 16, 9am-5pm
