TED Discussion: What to Trust in a “Post-Truth” World

The Atlantic Institute is proud to present TED Talk Dialogue Nights! Join us as we explore a variety of topics focusing on culture and education. TED Talks are short and engaging and open the door for a rousing discussions. We will begin by watching a pre-selected Talk and then open the floor for questions and discussion. We can then brainstorm on how to apply subjects to our daily lives. These Dialogue Nights will continue monthly. We will be joined by Converse professors Dr. Keven DeLapp and Dr. Jeff Barker as we discuss the topic, What to Trust in a "Post-Truth" World. We will watch the TED talk and then hear from both Professors as they each present their differing views on this topic, followed by audience Q&A.
