Erasmus Research Centre for Media, Communication and Culture (ERMeCC) and Erasmus Institute for Public Knowledge (EIPK) are organizing a lecture by visiting assistant professor ESHCC dr. Natalia Roudakova on 'Ethics and the Press in Post-Truth Russia'. 

'Post-Truth' might be Russia’s greatest export yet to the world. Combining ethnography, media analysis, political theory, and moral philosophy, Roudakova examines how journalism and its truth-seeking ethic was made superfluous in Russia over the past twenty five years; and the powerful effect that has produced on society.
