Facticity: Critical Thought in a Time of Doubt


USU’s Department Heads are sponsoring a year-long, campus-wide initiative that will provide the campus community a setting in which we can come together to discuss the variable nature of truth.

We will host four themed panel discussions over the year, two each semester. This interdisciplinary series will focus on the methods, tools, and evidence that a variety of academic disciplines use to determine the validity of claims. Each panel will include four faculty and one moderator from a range of disciplines. In addition to panels, we will conduct workshops on strategies and best practices for faculty who want to engage with these issues in their courses.

All panels will take place at the Eccles Conference Center Auditorium. Panel discussions will be followed by a reception where audience members have the opportunity to follow up with panel members.

They will also be simulcast via http://aggiecast.usu.edu/
