Why is fake news spreading on social media faster and farther than real news? 

Why do some people still share fake news to others even if they know the news is fake at the time when they are sharing? Dr. Daniel Effron, a social psychologist and professor at London Business School, will introduce one simple but scary factor which causes people to excuse themselves from spreading misinformation. A social psychologist by training, Daniel A. Effron is an associate professor of organisational behaviour at London Business School. He conducts behavioral experiments to understand why good people do bad things, and what leads us to let ourselves and others off the hook for wrongdoing. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.

Julie Lindahl

"Who Has the Right to History?"

Julie Lindahl is a multi-national author, educator, and democracy activist living in Sweden. Following a six-year journey in Europe and Latin America in which she discovered her grandparents’ role in the Third Reich, her memoir, The Pendulum: A Granddaughter’s Search for Her Family’s Forbidden Nazi Past (Rowman & Littlefield, 2018), was published and earned wide critical acclaim in the US and in Sweden. Her work has been featured several times by National Public Radio, the BBC World Service, and German and Swedish national television, and demonstrates how facing dark historical truths and taking responsibility for them, whether at a family or national level, can lead to a brighter future.

She has worked hands-on to strengthen democracy and human rights as an activist in local communities in Sweden, and as an educator in schools and other academic institutions in Europe and the US. She often collaborates closely with Holocaust survivors and their descendants, frequently as a partner in public conversations.

Julie holds a B.A. in English Literature from Wellesley College, an M.Phil. in International Relations from Oxford University and was a Fulbright Scholar in Frankfurt, Germany. Raised in ten countries on three continents, she worked globally as a consultant in the developing world.
