A weekend of talks, debates, music and workshops that look at the future of relationships in the digital age.
"Technology has transformed society. With the rise of dating apps, connecting with others has never been easier. But while Tinder reached 50 million users last year, studies show we are lonelier than ever. Considered by Plato the greatest of all subjects, the philosophy of love has been replaced by the study of science and data. Does technology pose a threat to our relationships? Or can it be harnessed to improve not just our personal connections but society as a whole?
Hear from world-leading thinkers on issues like: Can love be engineered? Are relationships really necessary? And how is technology changing the nature of intimacy? As well as a complimentary welcome drink and live music, you’ll get the unique chance to put your questions to the best in the field."
Speakers at the Globe's Love in the Time of Tinder weekend include Oxford neuroscientist Anders Sandberg, Screw the Fairytale author Helen Croydon, KCL philosopher Christopher Hamilton and BAFTA-nominated director Martha Fiennes.
