New virtual exhibition: Maps of Meaning

06 August 2020

'Fake news' appears to be a very modern problem that developed along with the internet revolution. In this exhibition, we will demonstrate that the creation and spread of misinformation also existed in medieval and pre-modern times, and we will explore academia’s involvement in this process.

The exhibition is curated by Meggy Lennaerts & Jan van der Molen as part of the "Things That Matter".
