Hill Lecture

Tuesday, 04 April, 2017

This year's Hill Lecturer is Joel Achenbach of the Washington Post. He's also written a number of books across a huge range of topics: Why Things Are (two books based on his long-standing column for the newspaper), A Hole at the Bottom of the Sea (about the BP-Deepwater Horizon oil spill), Captured by Aliens (about claims of beings from other worlds visiting Earth), and The Grand Idea, about George Washington's efforts to expand the United States westward.

The title for Joel's Hill Lecture will be "Navigating the Era of Fake News, Pseudoscience, and Bunk."
