Benedikt Bender organizes Frankfurter Gespräch with "MrWissen2Go": New Media and its influence on knowledge and truth

In the XII. edition of the event series Frankfurter Gespräche, Dr. Benedikt Bender, research associate at our professorship, organized a talk with "MrWissen2Go", Mirko Drotschmann, on March 23, 2022. The event was conducted in presence as well as broadcast via live stream and was titled: "Knowledge, Truth and the Creation of our Reality in the Age of the 'Digital Revolution'". The lecture of "Mr.Wissen2Go" was on the one hand about the use of social media for knowledge transfer (viewing behavior, learning and attention curve) and on the other hand about the challenges consumers and producers are confronted with. In the subsequent conversation and discussion with the audience, it was then "truth claims" and the "struggle" for knowledge and truth that came up and were controversially discussed. Overall, the event was a great opportunity to establish a connection between an expert in knowledge communication and our methods team.
