KIAS Around the World Conference: "Digital Media in a Post-Truth Era?"
The unfolding of recent political events in the United States sparked much debate around 'fake news,' disinformation and trustworthiness on the web. We hope to use these developments as a starting point for a broader discussion of how digital media has challenged and/or unsettled our notion of truth. The conference theme of ‘post-truth’ is loosely-defined and we welcome considerations of this topic from a wide range of perspectives: from the algorithmic to the philosophical. We welcome, as well, discussion of ‘post-truth’ as a notion reflecting a certain insularity and how questions of the ‘truthiness’ and the web resonate differently across the world.
Faculty at Texas A&M University participated in a live Around the World Conference on May 4, 2017 presented by the University of Alberta and the KULE Institute for Advanced Study.
