Intimacy in a networked world.

We’ve all had deep discussions with our friends while we’re out at night—why not add a couple of experts to the mix and really take it up a notch? That’s the idea behind Think & Drink, a happy-hour series in Portland that sparks provocative conversations about big ideas. The series invites you to participate in a facilitated public conversation with two panelists who have expertise in the subject at hand. The idea isn’t to create consensus but, rather, to foster an open interplay of viewpoints and perspectives.

The theme for this year’s series is “In a Networked World.” How does our highly networked, plugged-in culture affect the way we relate to each other and to the world around us? Join bloggers, cultural scholars, and other thought leaders to explore each month’s topic.  For our final installment of the series we’ll talk about Intimacy, with panelists Pete Coviello (Bowdoin College; @pcoviell, Pete even wrote a book called Intimacy in America: Dreams of Affiliation in Antebellum Literature) and Eden Osucha (Bates College).

**This event was originally scheduled for February 5th but was rescheduled for this date due to a giant snow storm.
