The Global Battle For Truth in the Fake News Era

The tension between those people trying to share accurate information and those individuals, organizations and governments trying to misinform the public has had a major impact on the available information for civil discourse. Join us for the second in a two-part symposium to look at how this issue is playing out around the world. This event will feature the launch of a first-of-its-kind Global Civil Discourse Map built by GVSU Civil Discourse and Computer Science students and presentations by GVSU faculty member Vandana Pednekar-Magal and acclaimed Chilean journalist Alejandra Matus.

INT 100/201 approved!

This online event is free and open to the public.

Hosted by the Padnos/Sarosik Civil Discourse Program. The event is co-sponsored by the Big Data Initiative, the School of Communications, the Writing Department, and the Digital Studies Program. Award-winning student group GrandPR is doing promotional work.
