IDEAS ON TAP: Real or Fake? Making Our Way in Post-Fact America
Ideas on Tap is a series of "pint-sized conversations about big ideas." Join us for drinks, appetizers, and conversation in a casual pub setting to examine timely topics in contemporary society. Misinformation, disinformation, and political rhetoric are not new, but is this more acute today than in the past? We are overwhelmed by information and the inexhaustible number of news sources that bring it to us. In this program, we'll look at the impact of “fake news” and how we as citizens can remain educated, thoughtful, discerning consumers of information.
Cost is $15 per person and includes appetizers and one beverage (beer, wine, or non-alcoholic drink) in the relaxed atmosphere of the Stark Brewing Co. in downtown Manchester. Please RSVP by June 10.
This project was funded in part by a grant from the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation's A.F. Zellers and W.G. Saltonstall Frontiers of Knowledge, Alice Hale Penniman Memorial Fund
