About The Event

Alternative facts, fake news, post-truth—these phrases have flooded the American conversation over the past several years. But how bad is it really, and what can we, as a society and as individuals, do to be better informed?

WSU professor Steven Stehr investigates the roots and consequences of the erosion of truth, with a focus on politics and science. Presented in partnership with the Humanities Washington Speakers Bureau.
