At the King’s College London Annual Education Lecture, Guardian columnist Jonathan Freedland will ask why this has become the era of post-truth, how much Donald Trump is to blame, the danger this poses to democracy – and what can be done about it.
This timely lecture is hosted by the School of Education, Communication & Society. Reflecting the School’s ethos of focussing on education in its broadest sense, the talk will ask whether the media have a particular role in, and responsibility for, public education- and if so, what that role is.
Jonathan Freedland is an award-winning journalist, author and broadcaster. He writes a weekly column for The Guardian and is the presenter of BBC Radio 4′s contemporary history series The Long View.
