Abstract

In his address, Professor Chacón will speak about his current research on World War I for the exhibition he is curating at the Montana Museum of Art & Culture, a show timed to commemorate the centennial of the U.S. entry into the Great War and opening in September 2017. Specifically, Dr. Chacón will speak about the state’s manipulation of truth and the use of propaganda as a weapon of modern war. Additionally, he will engage a more philosophical discussion on the nature of truth in politics and will argue that the Trump administration’s constructions of truth are the fulfillment of post-modernist injunctions.
