Event Details

Has this election cycle finally ushered in the Post-Factual Age? How can a conscientious fact-checker hope to keep up? As we head toward the finish line, Bill Adair, founder of the Pulitzer Prize-winning website PolitiFact and Knight Professor of the Practice of Journalism and Public Policy at Duke University, will help make sense of a truth-challenged season.

Periodic Tables is an informal science gathering during which invited speakers share interesting, relevant science to the general public in an engaging and interactive way.
