You Owe It to Yourself to Know How to Spot "Fake News"
Historian Ambeth Ocampo talks about historical revisionism.
(SPOT.ph) Ironically, the spread of misinformation (a.k.a. "fake news") is one of the biggest downsides to humanity's invention of the Internet. Memes, photos taken out of context, and false ideas are being shared on social media; with people unaware of the repercussions. Hoping to open our eyes about historical revisionism, Ayala Museum brings back their lecture series History Comes Alive. And this time, historian Ambeth Ocampo is facing his biggest audience yet through Zoom with the topic "Fake News" on October 2 at 5 p.m.
History Comes Alive is part of Ayala Museum's fundraising drive for Ayala Foundation's Student Online Access Program. It's part of an effort to provide Internet connection to students in need for the coming school year. A donation of P2,700 gives you access to two History Comes Alive lectures (the other being "Pandemic" on September 18) and one Rush Hour Concert. Individual passes for P1,000 is also available, while teachers and students get a discounted rate of P700.
History Comes Alive with Ambeth Ocampo is on September 18 for "Pandemic" and October 2 for "Fake News," 5 p.m. (Manila time) via Zoom. Access rate is at P1,000. For more information, follow Ayala Museum on Facebook.
