The Science of Fake News
Charlie Gee, assistant professor of media communications at Lincoln Memorial University, will present “The Science of Fake News” Friday, February 8.
The concept of false news has a long history. In the past few years, however, the term “fake news” has become a politically charged term and proliferated in our country’s discourse. What does it mean? What is its impact on individuals? In his presentation, Gee will discuss how we consume media, how it affects our brains and thus, our actions and ethical judgement, and just how little we really know about how “fake news” affects our democracy.
Guests are encouraged to bring their lunch or purchase it from the arena. Each presentation is followed by a Q&A. The event is free and open to the public.
