Truth Decay: Discrimination & Disinformation

The expansion of access to information through the internet, and the rise of almost unlimited sources of news and opinion, have given rise to the unprecedented spread of disinformation and misrepresentation about marginalized and oppressed populations. This rhetoric negatively impacts those of all ages, identities and social locations.

This workshop will examine both historical contexts for this decay of evidence and fact-based journalism and commentary, and expose specific language and strategies being used to intensify bias and discrimination.
