Objectivity: Trust and Truth In An Age of Disinformation
October 27, 2020 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm
Denise Balkissoon, Executive Editor of Chatelaine, will be giving the 2020 Atkinson Lecture on Oct. 27 at 11 a.m. She will speak about how marginalized journalists have always questioned the concept of objectivity—whether it’s possible, whether it’s useful, and what role it plays in keeping certain stories untold. That conversation is finally becoming mainstream, a crucial shift when the very idea of expertise is under siege.
The Atkinson Lecture is made possible by an Atkinson Charitable Foundation endowment in honour of former Toronto Star publisher Joseph E. Atkinson.
