This event is part of the Technology & Consciousness Series:Fall/Winter 2018-2019
It's not easy navigating what's true in a post-truth world. The constant barrage of information enabled by the internet & the 24-hour news cycle is not only disorienting, but has made it difficult to discern news from opinion & fact from fiction. In the era of fake news, Reddit conspiracy theories, & social media echo-chambers, we've been forced to re-examine our relationship with the truth.
Join Stanford's social media expert, Jeff Hancock, & Director of the Trust Project, Sally Lehrman, as they examine the erosion of truth online, how our psychological & social dynamics impact our culture, & what we can do to rebuild our collective grasp on the truth.

Jeff Hancock is a Professor in the Department of Communication at Stanford University, Founding Director of the Social Media Lab & Director of the Stanford Center for Computational Social Science. Professor Hancock works on the psychology of social media to examine deception & trust, emotional dynamics, intimacy & relationships, folk theories & well-being.
His TED Talk on deception has been seen over 1 million times & he's been featured as a guest on CBS This Morning for his expertise on social media. His research has been frequently featured in the popular press, including the New York Times, CNN, NPR, CBS & the BBC.
Professor Hancock was a Customs Officer before earning his PhD in Psychology. He currently lives in Palo Alto with his wife & daughter, & he regularly gets shot at as a hockey goalie.
Sally Lehrman founded & directs the Trust Project, an international consortium of news outlets implementing a transparency standard for journalism to help the public-and news distribution platforms-identify quality news out of the hubbub online. She was named one of MediaShift's Top 20 Digital Innovators in 2018 for this work.
An award-winning reporter on medicine & science policy with an emphasis on coverage of social diversity, her honors also include a Peabody Award, duPont-Columbia & the John S. Knight Fellowship at Stanford University, among others. Sally's byline credits include Scientific American, Nature, Health, The Boston Globe, The New York Times, Salon.com, & The DNA Files, distributed by NPR. Her book, News in a New America, argues for an inclusive US news media.
