Developing a Knowledge Organisation Community Response to the Post-Truth Information Age
David Clarke, FRSA
In 2016 the Oxford English Dictionary chose ‘post-truth’ as word of the year. Their decision was based on the proliferation of fake news stories and misinformation that accompanied both the US national election and the British EU referendum. On Earth Day in April 2017 thousands of people gathered in London for a March for Science, protesting the negative impact of post-truth culture and politics on science, research and education. How can the Knowledge Organization community engage with and respond to these issues? In this session, David Clarke will describe the problem space and comment on the issues from the perspective of knowledge organisation and information science. The session will conclude with 30 minutes for audience participation, including a discussion about how the KO community can get involved and contribute ideas for solutions.
