BYO Truth: Language Matters and (Mis)Information in the Public Sphere: What is truth? How do we know it? Recently, debates about language, truth, facts, and news have dominated the public sphere. In addition to traditional modes of public engagement, social media and other internet platforms have added new ways of disseminating (mis)information while increasing uncertainty about trustworthy sources. This conference addresses issues of language and truth by examining both the stories we tell and the ways in which we circulate them. We will explore how discussion of truth are expressions of, and attempts to normalize, differences in political, economic, and social outlooks.
