ESG Lectures 2019 – The Invisible World of ‘Fake News’ with Prof. Philip McCormack MBE

Saturday 9 March, 2019

We invite you to join us for this year’s Edwin Stephen Griffiths’ Lectures at the South Wales Baptist College from 1.30pm on Wednesday 27th March. The two lectures will be:

  • 1:30pm – The Invisible World of ‘Fake News’
  • 3:30pm – Navigating the Invisible World of ‘Fake News’

This year our guest lecturer is the Revd Professor Philip McCormack MBE who is Principal of Spurgeon’s College, London. In these two lectures Philip will invite us to reflect upon the invisible ideas and assumptions which help shape and create the social and cultural environment in which things like ‘fake news’ can emerge. He will also alert us to resources which can help us navigate our way through this invisible world.
