Co-Sponsored with UW-Eau Claire's Forum Series:
Building on his award-winning nonfiction book, "Bunk", Kevin Young outlines the history of the hoax and the hoaxing of history that led us to this particular moment of “fake news” and “truthiness.” Young traces an American inheritance of fakery from P. T. Barnum to present-day impostors like Rachel Dolezal who reaffirm the hoax as rife with race and unreason, threatening our art, politics, and daily lives.
