Talks at this conferenceAdd a talk
Each of us consumes a lot of information from sources of dubious reliability. Some such information is called 'fake news.' There is widespread agreement that the consumption of fake news is bad for democracy, but there is no consensus on what fake news is and the epistemology of fake news remains relatively underexplored. The goal of the conference is to investigate the phenomenon of fake news from an epistemological point of view. The talks will be themed around the following topics: epistemic authority and expertise, ignorance, ideology and propaganda, disagreement, conspiracy theories, trust and testimony, implicit bias, and social media.
