The Future of Entertainment

Monday, November 6, 2023, 6:00–7:00pm

Foster 107

Future Café is a student-organized series that provides the opportunity and space for undergraduates to collectively imagine utopian possibilities and long-term futures. University of Chicago undergraduate students, please join us for our next meeting to discuss the future of entertainment over pizza, guacamole, and chips.

Entertainment has been considered a hobby, an escape, a political tool, or a way to fill time. In the long-term future, how will the narrative of entertainment respond to social and political pressures? How effective are escapism and distraction? As whatever it is that we try to escape evolves, will the distractions we use become more or less effective?

Future Café events are open to all undergraduate students at the University of Chicago. No prior knowledge of the topic of discussion is required, nor is there “homework.”


This event is free and open to all University of Chicago undergraduate students; registration is recommended.
