We live in what has been called a ‘post-truth age.’ In this interactive webinar, Anoushka and Uri, who are Parkes Outreach Fellows and doctoral researchers at the Parkes Institute for Jewish and Non-Jewish relations will speak about the relationship between truth, post-truth, contemporary issues within the recent history of Jewish and non-Jewish relationships and lead discussions on the same.

Anoushka and Uri will draw upon both their personal backgrounds as well as their academic practice as doctoral researchers to invite you to think about how they tackle contemporary media coverage of issues such as antisemitism and political stances about the same in their research. This webinar not only covers a very pertinent and topical theme, but also offers you an opportunity to reflect on the intersection of personal and professional identities and demystify the world of academic research.
