Truth & Denial: Searching for Information in the Digital Era

Truth & Denial: Searching for Information in the Digital Era

REGISTER | A Zoom link will be sent to registrants on the day of the event.

Join us on April 22 for a “Matrix on Point” discussion, as a group of distinguished panelists will approach questions of objectivity, disinformation, and the construction of truth from a media-consumption (rather than media-production) perspective, focusing on how internet users find information, how algorithms play a deterministic role in search results, and how lies propagate and solidify. We also want to take a self-reflexive approach to these issues, looking at the strategies that scholars and journalists have developed to study these phenomena and understand their impact on our society.

This event is presented as part of the Matrix on Point discussion series, which promotes focused, cross-disciplinary conversations on today’s most pressing contemporary issues. Offering opportunities for scholarly exchange and interaction, each Matrix On Point features the perspectives of leading scholars and specialists from different disciplines, followed by an open conversation. These thought-provoking events are free and open to the public.
