"2019 Information Literacy Summit Keynote Address Dr. Nicole A. Cooke, Associate Professor and the MSLIS Program Director at the School of Information Sciences, the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
We are now living in an age of “fake news,” which is but one manifestation of misinformation and disinformation (mis/dis) and human information behavior.
Fake news is not a new phenomenon, but this latest iteration has highlighted the affective, or emotional, dimensions of how people interact with information – information consumption is so much more than people’s cognitive processing.
This talk will address the renewed phenomenon of fake news, mis/dis, and its related concepts but then focus more explicitly on the affective information behaviors that influence our interactions with information and help us intellectually thrive in a post-truth society."
