Flocks and Fakes

View descriptionShare

The dark arts of online deception run the gamut from love rats and confidence tricksters to dedicated political disinformation campaigns. Hear memoirist Stephanie Wood (Fake) and Soviet-born British journalist Peter Pomerantsev (This is Not Propaganda) in conversation with Rebecca Giggs. They consider the scale of these manipulations, how they impact personal lives, and how identity – and intimacy – are changing in the information age. Together, they examine our faith in facts and the difference between self-promotion and outright deception.
