(Mis)informed: Propaganda, Disinformation, Misinformation, and Our Culture

Friday, June 1, 10:00 a.m. – 5:30 p.m. with Happy Hour / Propaganda Party to follow

Our culture is overwhelmed with instances of incorrect information in many forms. From foreign actors to our social connections, misleading and often dangerous information has seemingly co-opted our online and offline spaces.

Join us on Friday, June 1 to investigate the (social) media environment that allows incorrect information to thrive, seek a better understanding of the actors behind these events, and wax philosophical about the current state of counterfeit information and what this foreshadows about the library, archives, and museums community.
