On September 23, Tatyana Chernigovskaya gave a lecture at Manege, entitled “The 21st century as a test for human civilization”.
The digital age is upon us, posing new challenges for society. The merger between high technology and advanced means of telecommunication is changing the ways we interact, work, and study. The pandemic has further accelerated the ongoing social alienation process that has made mobile gadgets the chief interlocutor between people. The world is changing at a breakneck pace. Can humans keep up?
In her lecture, Tatyana Chernigovskaya reflected on the qualitative changes in our life brought about by the digitization of society and the widespread use of remote communication options. Will it be simply a matter of adapting human existence to operate in this fast-changing world, or will our lives change to conform to it?
The speaker is Professor Tatyana Chernigovskaya. She holds a PhD in biology and a PhD in philology, and is an Associate Member of the Russian Authors’ Society, Merited Higher Educator and Merited Scholar of the Russian Federation, Director of St. Petersburg State University’s Institute for Cognitive Studies, and Associate Member of the Russian Academy of Education.
