The Future of LoveTuesday, February 13, 2024, 6:00–7:00pm
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 College students, please join us for our next meeting to discuss the future of love over pizza, guacamole, and chips.
As norms shift and new technologies evolve, interpersonal communication and the way we form relationships with one another are also bound to change. In the long-term future, how will romance, sex, ethics, gender roles, family structures, and any other topics related to love look?
Many people are familiar with Gary Chapman’s Five Love Languages—words of affirmation, acts of service, receiving gifts, quality time, and physical touch. How might some of these go away, be replaced, or redefined? With so much of work and social life moving online, how will we make romantic connections as spheres of societal activity continue to shift?
This event is free and open to all University of Chicago undergraduate students; registration is recommended.
