Sticks and Stones: Defeating the Culture of Bullying and Rediscovering the Power of Character and Empathy

In this timely talk, Emily Bazelon will address an increasingly important topic: bullying. She will guide the audience on a sweeping, thoughtful, and empathetic journey through the social and legal ramifications to answer key questions: Which school programs work best to combat bullying? How effective are laws at protecting our children from this trauma? What do recent high-profile cases of bullying tell us about how the issue has changed over the years? How are people using new technologies—mobile phones, social media, texting—to both spread and combat bullying? Importantly, Bazelon asks if bullying is happening to the degree that media reports suggest.
