maxresdefaultAnnual New York Wellesley Club Meeting and Faculty Lecture with Professor Takis Metaxas

The internet and social media have dramatically changed our lives and will continue to do so, not always in a good way. As we are using them daily to be informed and act on this information, they are affecting our perception of reality and our trust in democracy. Why do they have such power and how can we make sure they can be used to support, not damage, our democratic institutions?

Join us for this faculty lecture on April 27th, titled "Of course it's true, I saw it on the internet: How and why fake news and misinformation propagate, and what to do about it."
