Grusin can speak about how President Trump’s social media feed has shaped political discourse.
President Trump used Twitter prolifically and his posts were amplified by traditional and new media outlets, increasing exposure to his social media presence. Richard Grusin can speak about the influence of Trump’s robust Twitter feed on news coverage, and the role that media has played in the shifting tone of political discourse. A distinguished professor, Grusin can discuss how social media/new media platforms have shaped political moods, particularly by magnifying division, fear and anger. Grusin also is co-editor of the book “Ends of Cinema,” which looks at the future of film in the 21st century.
