Session 2 : Post-Truth Politics

6pm - 7pm

The idea of Post-Truth politics has become ubiquitous, repeatedly used to describe the changing role of media and information in political contexts in which debates are increasingly framed by appeals to emotions and often disconnected from the details of policies. What do post-truth politics imply, in differing national contexts? What light can an exercise in comparison shed on what seems to have become a global trend?

Speakers include Mukulika Banerjee (LSE), Jean-Claude Monod (ENS/CNRS) and Richard Bronk (LSE). Chaired by Damian Tambini (LSE).
