HASS Lecture - The Wonderful Age of Disinformation

Date & Time:
Tuesday, September 29, 2020
4:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m.


Truth in the Age of Disinformation

In the era of fake news, few remaining paper publications that give the semblance of the truth, in a porous internet environment where one email or story looks very much like another, and with the catfishing of personal identities being rampant, we have something of an existential dilemma about truth. Without appearing cliché, Greg Mewbourn and Stuart Lenig would like to hold a little reality check about what is truth and how can we tell it if we see it. Mewbourn will discuss the ways in which political ads have reinterpreted the truth and how the internet age has accelerated the decay of truth. Lenig look at films like Rashomon that debate the notion of truth and the various motives of active players in the truth business.
