Course TitleHONORS COLLOQUIUM - GV
DescriptionTruth, Lies, and Democracy: Take a walk off the edge of the Earth and into the abyss of lies, disinformation, fake news, alternative facts, and conspiracy theory. Perhaps the most significant threat to 21st century democracy lay in the tenuousness of truth. Weaponized as “fake news,” politicians and pundits turn certainties into falsehoods, amplified through corporate media, social media and the internet--sometimes aided by anti-democratic governments and actors--in the service of the construction of a sense of “un-reality.” This will be topical focus of this colloquium. Prerequisite: EN 101. Lecture: 3 credits.
