In today’s digital-dominant world of dating—where ghosting is the norm and choices seem inexhaustible—does romance still even exist? Apps like Tinder and Bumble seem to have rendered traditional practices of flirtation and seduction obsolete. As consent debates intensify and privacy vanishes, how do we link with one another in meaningful ways? And what role does literature play, now that the sonnet has been replaced by the swipe? How do our novels, stories, and essays reflect this tumultuous state of modern love? Join panelists Niviaq Korneliussen, Gabriela Wiener, Mary H.K. Choi, and Isaac Fitzgerald for an in-depth discussion of attraction and romance in the age of the app.
