In Search of Our Times Lecture: Fact and Fiction
Sunday, May 10, 2020
2 p.m.: Reception
3 p.m.: Lecture


 

The twentieth century saw a constant struggle between media propaganda and media disclosures, top-down and bottom-up counter-narratives. How does twenty-first-century social media fit in this pattern? Has it contributed to the democratization of knowledge or to a stronger filtering and framing of reality? Why has “fake news” become a serious competitor to “real” news? And how to differentiate between the two? 

RSVPs open April 10, 2020 at 10 a.m.

In Search of Our Times is presented as part of Wende Conversations: A Discussion Series Supported by Susan Horowitz and Rick Feldman. Click here to learn about the other discussions in the series.
