Conceived in conjunction with the exhibition Questionable History, the Wende Museum presents a monthly virtual program, In Search of Truth, co-organized and co-presented by an eight-person Student Council. With this series of interviews, panel discussions, and performances we will explore the concept of truth in an era of fake news, culture wars, conspiracy theories, and alternative facts. What is the meaning of truth in evolution, history, politics, (social) media, science, education, philosophy, and the arts? This series of twelve programs explores many possible answers. Held on the fourth Wednesday of the month at 4 p.m. PST via Zoom.

 

 

The Wende Museum begins its new monthly virtual program series In Search of Truth with an hour-long discussion featuring our eight-person In Search of Truth student council. Is there objective truth, or is everyone entitled to their own sense of reality? Can science, philosophy, and art reveal different aspects of truth? What does it mean to be truthful in history teaching? What is the function of truth in keeping our society together? And what causes the current crisis of truth, and how can we overcome it? These are some of the questions that will be addressed. The discussion will be followed by Q&A with the viewers.
