Napa Bookmine Virtual Author Hour: Nolan Higdon

Join Napa Bookmine for a virtual author hour with Nolan Higdon on Wednesday, Sept. 2 at 7 p.m.

The discussion focuses on Lloyd’s book, The Anatomy of Fake News. Since the 2016 U.S. presidential election, concerns about fake news have fostered calls for government regulation and industry intervention to mitigate the influence of false content. These proposals are hindered by a lack of consensus concerning the definition of fake news or its origins. Media scholar Nolan Higdon contends that expanded access to critical media literacy education, grounded in a comprehensive history of fake news, is a more promising solution to these issues. The Anatomy of Fake News offers the first historical examination of fake news that takes as its goal the effective teaching of critical news literacy in the United States.

Higdon employs a critical-historical media ecosystems approach to identify the producers, themes, purposes and influences of fake news. The findings are incorporated into a fake news detection kit.
