This is the second in a series of four virtual events presented by News Media, Digital Humanities, FAIFE, and CLM.  This event offers three speakers’ research into the concept of fake news and its impact in modern society.

Panelists are Abby Moore and Catherine Tingelstad, presenting a paper titled, “Nuanced Literacy and Fake News: Academic Librarians’ Role in New Information Environments,” and Enrica Manenti, who will present, “‘Handle with double care.’ Memorial sites, teens, libraries and Wikipedia.”  A Question and Answer session will follow the talks.
