Reality in the Age of Truthiness | Thursday, March 9

The most dangerous promise of the market society today is the right to our own individual reality. Yet this is precisely what the 24-hour media cycle has produced and reality is actually being lost in the rising prominence of this new media culture. Can democracy survive in today’s media movement?

Join us as we delve into the relationship between the media and our own realities with professor David Castillo, co-author of “Medialogies: Reading Reality in the Age of Inflationary Media.”

Lecture: Buffalo and Erie County Public Library followed by an alumni reception at the Pan-American Grill & Brewery | Includes hors d’oeuvres and a cash bar

This is a free alumni event, registration is required
