In a speech bridging politics, media, entertainment and higher education, Frank Bruni will discuss the ways in which digital technology, the Internet and a Balkanization of both news and popular culture have prompted Americans to create, retreat to and hunker down in ever smaller, narrower niches that make constructive dialogue more difficult and deprive us of common points of reference and common purpose.
