Navigating Away from Truth Decay


1.45pm, Sunday, Discovery Lounge

Margaret Allen, Prof Nick Enfield, Dr Julia Powles
Facilitator: Daniel Midgley

Conspiracy theories, gaslighting, confirmation bias – all ways in which truth is subverted and facts are called into question.

Join a panel of experts as they interrogate how exactly falsehoods are confused for facts, why people believe them, and how to counter it in yourself.

Learn how the library, as one of the last trusted social institutions in contemporary society, can help you question assumptions, verify claims and seek out authoritative sources of information.
