LAW 741 - Interdisciplinary Problem Solving
Section: 004 We face a failure of public trust in sources of truth about matters of fact. Public actors lie and accuse each other of lying. Media outlets present competing narratives. People do not know whom to trust or believe. Misinformation and conspiracy theories spread via social media. Drawing from psychology, communications, journalism, social media, information, computer science, law, and history and other relevant fields, our aim is to identify concrete potential solutions or avenues that might help people identify and trust sources of truth and/or that might mitigate the spread of misinformation.
