Fake News, Misinformation and Political Bias: News Literacy for the 21st Century

March 25 @ 4:45 pm - 6:00 pm

Claims about fake news, bias, and misinformation have become much more prevalent in the past few years. But what is “fake news”? And what role does personal bias play in our perception of the news? Being a more informed 21st-century citizen requires a critical approach to the media. Join Judith Rosenbaum, Assistant Professor in Communication and Journalism, and Jen Bonnet, Social Sciences and Humanities Librarian, for an interactive workshop where we will unpack the many meanings of “fake news” and learn how to critically evaluate information we find online.

Space is limited. Attendance is first come, first served.
