Misinformation in the digital age creates unique hurdles for communities across the world. A panel of experts at the front lines of the information wars will discuss what this means for our culture and democracy. Misinformation and conspiracy theories have always been part of human culture, but now they travel at fiber-optic speed. Are conspiracy theories the new normal in American discourse? How do we curb disinformation while balancing free speech? The panel will tackle these questions and engage in a conversation around the effects of misinformation in the digital age.
The panelists include: Michael Artime, a visiting assistant professor of Political Science at Pacific Lutheran University; Ira Hyman, a professor of psychology at Western Washington University and Katya Drozdova, a political science professor at Seattle Pacific University. The panel will be moderated by Western Washington University professor, Johann Neem.
