Urgent Publishing calls for insightful, quickly produced and well-positioned publications in an era where fake news, pseudoscience and other fact free features are broadcast to the world. On this opening night of a two-day conference speakers will discuss publishing in a post-truth era: how to publish effectively between fast populism and slow academia?

Please note: the location of this event is the Amsterdamse Academische Club.

While the availability of publishing technologies have helped bring different voices onto the stage, connect new communities and identify hegemonic intersections of power, they have also played a role in bringing about what is known as the ‘post-truth era’. Critical interventions have mainly attracted the in-crowd of art and avantgarde publishing, while a disenchanted public is left behind to scavenge the rubble of breaking fake news stories, information pollution and broken links.

What is needed is a break with the old, closed pre-digital era of gatekeepers or high entry costs. Publishers, writers, researchers, designers and developers need new strategies for urgent publishing. What characteristics does this current post-truth media landscape have? And isn’t ‘post-truth’ just another word for propaganda or fake news? What role do the traditional media have to play in new strategies for digital publishing? Join us for an evening of talks, truth and urgency.
