In the era of “post truth” and fake news, what are the implications for science? When is a fact a fact? What is the relationship between truth and the pursuit of scientific knowledge? How can breakthroughs in science be communicated to a public that polls suggest has grown more leery of expertise? Two days before the March for Science, these and other related to science communication will be explored in an unusual forum featuring interviews with three of Yale’s great professors: Dan Kahan, Meg Urry, and David Hafler. Their experiences underscore the difficulties facing scientists in a mistrustful and partisan age.
