Dr. Boland’s talk focuses on the British press during Brexit, addressing issues such as trust in the media and the fraught question of “balance”. She will draw on recent research regarding “fake news” and how readers consume media to suggest that, while the picture is not as dire as some suggest, the British media has much to do if it wishes to regain the trust of the public and promote a better, more thoughtful, open political discourse post-Brexit.
