Critical Conversations: Community Wide Civic Dialogue forum tackles "How Misinformation Shapes and Divides Society" on Nov. 1st

A free public panel discussion will explore misinformation—from propaganda and social media to data interpretation—and how each piece of rhetoric intersects and shapes our daily living and group identities. The panel is composed of Dr. Nyesha Black from the Department of Sociology; Drs. Fan Yang and Timothy Levine (distinguished professor and chair) of Department of Communication Studies; Dr. Wendy Gunther-Canada, chair of Department of Government; and Mr. Christopher Burks, graduate student in public administration.

The event will begin 6:00 p.m. November 1st in UAB’s Heritage Hall Room 102.

Critical Conversations: Community Wide Civic Dialogue is a platform for students, faculty, staff, and local citizens outside of UAB to come together and hold civil discourse on challenging topics which prove relevant to fostering a diverse, equitable and inclusive community. The event is co-hosted by UAB’s Department of Communication Studies, Department of Government, and Department of Sociology.
