Science Cafe: Science Journalism in the Age of Fake News

This event is free (except for food or beverage purchases) and open to the public. Registration is requested.


We live in troubled times for science and journalism. Both are under siege by segments of society and by leaders who challenge scientific evidence and the veracity and integrity of the nation's leading news organizations. They question evolution, the safety and efficacy of vaccines and the data for and implications of climate change, as well as the accuracy and impartiality of news organizations to report the news that informs our democracy. Add conspiracy theorists and internet trolls spreading untruths to the public and you have a dangerous recipe for an uninformed – or worse, misinformed – citizenry.


Join us for a panel discussion with Washington Post health and science editor Laura Helmuth, the fall 2018 UW–Madison science writer-in-residence. With Wisconsin Institute for Discovery director Jo Handelsman and professor of law and bioethics Alta Charo, Helmuth will participate in a science café-style panel conversation, moderated by professor of journalism and mass communication Sharon Dunwoody, on the importance of independent, well-sourced and well-reported science news in preserving the interests of society.

Sponsored by the Religious Studies Program, Dept. of Afro-American Studies and Division of the Arts
Aretha Franklin died in August 2018, leaving a rich musical legacy. Our panelists are teaching courses this term that in some way relate to the musical and ritual traditions and the political, cultural and religious contexts that influenced and have been influenced by Ms. Franklin. This is an opportunity for interdisciplinary reflection and of course, we will hear some of her music as well as talk about it.
