Workshop: Epistemic Norms for the New Public Sphere

Location: Room 1.09, Oculus Building

This event is hosted by the AHRC-funded project Norms for the New Public Sphere, which brings together academic philosophers with media scholars, activists and professionals in order to investigate the opportunities and challenges that new social media pose for the public sphere.
