Information Self-Defense: Understanding Disinformation and Fake News

February 4th, 2020 | 400 Eau Claire Street | Location: Eau Claire

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. Visit www.ecpubliclibrary.info/calendar/disinformation.
