Join us for the 2017 Common Reading Program event featuring this year’s book selection: The Outrage Industry: Political Opinion Media and the New Incivility. Authors and Tufts Professors Jeff Berry and Sarah Sobieraj will speak with students and WBUR’s Senior Political Reporter, Anthony Brooks, about the growing wave of outrage in today’s hyper-partisan political media and how it impacts our cultural and political landscape.The Common Reading Program provides all incoming first-year and transfer students the opportunity to have a shared intellectual experience and a chance to explore themes and issues connected to civic life as they begin their time at Tufts. The Common Reading Program is supported by Tisch College and by the Office of the Dean of Undergraduate and Graduate Students.
