Fake news is nothing new, but it feels more prevalent these days. Misleading or outright wrong information can reach more people more quickly via social media.

Join Dr. Jessica Ghilani as she examines the historical framework for understanding fake news, discusses how we got to this point, and offers tips on how to fact-check the news.

Dr. Jessica Ghilani is an Associate Professor of Communication at the University of Pittsburgh, Greensburg. She teaches and researches media history, cultural studies, and corporate and professional communication.

Registration is required for this free event.
