Event description

Description

Think&Drink is a Humanities happy hour series that combines good conversation and great beer. Join our content experts for a dynamic dialogue set in a great local bar.

Fake News needs to be understood as belonging to the long history of propaganda. Though Fake News is a relatively recent term, the phenomenon of inaccurate or completely fabricated information has long existed. This presentation will offer a brief history of propaganda and propaganda research in order to understand how Fake News is similar and different to other forms of propaganda. I will then discuss how we can leverage the historical and contemporary research in propaganda studies so as to combat the production, circulation, and reception of Fake News through personal, journalistic, and policy actions.

Discussion led by Robert Mejia

Moderated by Dennis Cooley
