Intellectual Life in a Technological Age

How to Develop a Brilliant Mind in a Time of Endless Distraction

Ever sat down to read a book . . . and found yourself looking at your phone instead?

Or felt worried about how much shorter your attention span has become?

You’re not alone. Many students (and even faculty!) feel the same way.

The good news is that you can nurture an intellectual life in our technological age. This ISI webinar will show you how.

With the experienced guidance of professors Zena Hitz and Glenn Arbery, you will learn how to cultivate lifelong habits to feed your intellect, how to discover formative books and concepts, and much more.

Zena Hitz is a tutor at St. John’s College and the author of Lost in Thought: The Hidden Pleasures of an Intellectual Life, which Literary Review calls “an inspirational attestation of the ability of intellectual activity to dignify oppressed lives.”

Glenn Arbery is president of Wyoming Catholic College and the author of several books, including Why Literature Matters.

This unique workshop will inspire, challenge, and guide you.

Recorded September 23, 2020.
