I've been teaching writing, literature, and film at St. Edward's University for about 25 years. I'm interested in hearing what conference participants think of Nicholas Carr's work. Recently, I've been interested in Sherry Turkle's new book on how social media affect our relationships with others--especially in light on conversations in a lit class where I was teaching Philip K. Dick's Do Androids Dream of Electric Sleep? and Blade Runner. I'm especially interested in Turkle's concerns about how people develop emotional connections with robots.
