The Politics of (Post) Truth - Journalism and (Post) Truth

Garcia Rodriguez Blancas, Laura (2018) The Politics of (Post) Truth - Journalism and (Post) Truth. In: The Politics of (Post) Truth, October, 2018, Cumberland Lodge, Windsor. (KAR id:73937)


The Politics of (Post) Truth conference brings together academics, politicians, media practitioners, and members of the public in two days of collaborative exchange. It aims to revisit the prevailing understanding of what has popularly been labelled ‘post-truth’ politics. The conference brings together three, closely linked, disciplines – politics, philosophy and journalism – to explore new and shifting perspectives on this topic and establish an interdisciplinary understanding of ‘post-truth’.

The post-truth phenomenon raises difficult questions for politicians, philosophers and the public alike: have we lost trust in the media and other key institutions of the state? How might we rebuild it? Can we reassert the role of academic knowledge in contemporary political debate? How might politicians construct healthier political debate in the face of the corrosion of the ‘truthfulness’ of political, academic and journalistic discourse?
