Event – Talking Science in the Age of Fake News

Please join us in marking the 20th anniversary of the McGill Office for Science and Society (OSS)!

David Harpp, founder of the OSS, will take a look back at our last 20 years and how we became the first-ever University backed office dedicated to critical thinking and disseminating information based on scientific evidence in a world way before the term “fake news” even existed.

Following this retrospective, Timothy Caulfield, Author of Is Gwyneth Paltrow Wrong About Everything and star of A User’s Guide to Cheating Death, Joe Schwarcz, Director of the McGill OSS, Carly Weeks, National Health Reporter at The Globe and Mail, and Ryan Armstrong, Executive Director of the non-profit organization Bad Science Watch, will each present a 10-minute “flash talk” describing one main challenge they face in science communication today. This will then be followed by a panel discussion moderated by McGill OSS science communicator, Jonathan Jarry.
