CAMBRIDGE FORUM invites to you join a free, lively discussion on April 27 at 4 pm ET.
Many of the problems we face in the world today – the global pandemic, the economic crisis, political violence of the kind that rocked the Capitol in January – are the result of our severe information disorder. How do we create a universe of truthful and verifiable information, available to everyone?

We are swimming in a sea of lies, but what can we do about it? MIT Open Learning’s Peter Kaufman has some suggestions. For starters, it might be time to think anew about our rights to knowledge, our approach to the public sphere, and our concept of information and the public good.

In his book, "The New Enlightenment And The Fight To Free Knowledge" Kaufman fills us in on the history of knowledge and the price exacted to disseminate it to the public.

What can we do in the present-day America, to counter the powerful forces that have purposely crippled our efforts to share knowledge widely and freely?
Register now on Zoom to join this webinar.
