PUBLIC LECTURE DATES REMAINING FOR 2017:
20 December 2017
Group: Doomwatch Wednesdays
Lecture: Fighting for Truth and Free Speech in Complex Times
Venue: The Broadway, Peterborough
Andy takes a sideways look at the continual media focus on ‘fake news’, ‘post-truth’, Donald Trump, Brexit and so on, and questions some of the assumptions being made about these areas. Was there really ever a pre-‘post-truth’ era, and if news is fake, which news, and who should be the arbiters of truth? Proposed ‘solutions’ seriously risk closing down legitimate alternative enquiry and any notion of free speech.
And yet, rather than living in the “dark” times we keep being told they are, could the challenges we are being presented with actually be the very things that help usher in a new and better era? Andy explains how we should speak out more freely and deal more positively with the current information overload to help make more sense of complex times.
