Political Science professors Alana Jeydel and Cindi Unmack will discuss how misinformation comes into play in U.S. elections. We’ll discuss some historical examples, the growing concerns about misinformation in the digital age, Constitutional issues related to attempts to regulate election speech, and also take a global perspective to see how other countries are tackling this issue. This session is part of the Fall 2018 ARC Colloquium: Misinformation in the Public Sphere, which addresses the extent of misinformation of all kinds in the world around us, seeks to make us aware of its existence, and proposes conversations about how to deal with it inside and outside the classroom.
