Information Self-Defense: Understanding Disinformation and Fake News

Disinformation, false information that is deliberately spread, has a long and storied history that predates our contemporary struggle with “fake news.” The program will include some notable historical examples, as well as a look at contemporary disinformation campaigns. The program will be presented by Kate Hinnant, Head of Instruction and Communication at UW–Eau Claire’s McIntyre Library.
