Today it seems that conspiracy and rumour spread faster than ever and are increasingly hard to debunk. How do we convincingly explain the difference between good information and misinformation?
Jess Berentson-Shaw, author of A Matter of Fact: Talking Truth in a Post-Truth World, will be joined by Shaun Hendy and Jennifer Curtin to tackle this question head-on. The conversation will cover how we can talk effectively (and empathetically) about contentious information, such as immunisation, the gender pay gap and climate change.
3.30-4.30 p.m., Saturday 11 August
Pioneer Women’s Hall, Level 1
