Chew on This: Are You Sure?
Vera Mae's Bistro
209 South Walnut Street
Stephen Colbert coined the term “truthiness”—the idea that something may seem or feel true, even if it’s not—in 2006. It’s an idea that seems to be at the heart of our culture in 2017. We’re now living in a post-“truthiness” era, where fake news circulates easily (and “real” news can be dismissed if we don’t like what it tells us). Urgent debates—is climate change real? are GMOs dangerous? should I vaccinate my child?—are all, when it comes down to it, about the nature of evidence and the ways we decide if it is reliable and valid.
How do we know if something is true? What counts as evidence? How we answer these questions as individuals and as a society affects the choices we make—everything from how we read the news and vote, to how we choose the foods we eat and make healthcare decisions, to how our leaders set policy for the economy, the environment and more.
Join Indiana Humanities on Tuesday, May 9 as we ask the question “Are You Sure?” during a special Quantum Leap-themed Chew on This. Sign up to share a meal and a fun yet in-depth conversation with other curious Hoosiers. Each table will be led by an expert facilitator, someone who grapples with questions about evidence, truth and validity every day. Your ticket price includes your meal and an unforgettably rich experience.
