Challenging our information assumptions and consumption in a 'fake news,' 'post-truth' era

Wednesday, Oct. 25, 2017
Noon-1 p.m.
Eau Claire Golf & Country Club
828 Clubview Lane, Altoona

Post-truth was Oxford Dictionaries' 2016 word of the year, just one marker of the recent dramatic growth in attention to the issue of identifying reliable information. Jill Markgraf, interim director of UW-Eau Claire's McIntyre Library, will discuss the challenges posed by the changing information landscape, how our own behaviors are both contributing to and impacted by the problem, and strategies for more critically evaluating information.
