Fact & Faith
Critical Encounters: Fact & Faith explores how we negotiate the tension between the need to believe and the need to know. Through dialogue, art, performance, and collaboration, we will consider fact and faith not merely through the lens of science and religion, but in all its aspects: How does "fact" inform our practice of media, storytelling, and politics? How does "faith" shape our ideals, communities, decision-making, and sense of self? Through Critical Encounters: Fact & Faith we will examine the concept of truth, what shapes it, and how it is expressed.
