Keynote speaker: Professor John Rogers

When: 9am – 5pm, Friday, May 25, 2018

What is fake news? How do they intervene
in politics? How are they challenging
the notion of developing a globally
informed citizenry? And how can fake
news be tackled in classroom settings?

In this conference, we invite students,
researchers, and practitioners from all
disciplines to discuss the rise of fake
news and the challenges it poses to
notions of truth, dialogue, and democracy.
Bring your friends and stop by for a day of
exciting, enlightening, and engaging
dialogues featuring student panels and
lectures from UCLA faculty members.
