The Loss of Solitude in Schools and Culture

October 25, 2011

Hour 2: How is our always-on, never-out-of touch society affecting school kids and the world they will eventually enter as adults? We’ll spend this hour with Diana Senechal [1], who will receive the Hiett Prize in Humanities and deliver the Dallas Institute of Humanities and Culture [2] 2011 Hiett Prize Lecture on Wednesday. Her forthcoming book on the subject is “Republic of Noise: The Loss of Solitude in Schools and Culture” (R&L Education, 2011).
