In this age, does Truth have any value?
What is the Future of Truth?
Does it even have a future? These are the questions animating this new research project at the University of Connecticut Humanities Institute. Our aim is to investigate how the way in which we know, value and understand truth is changing in this technological and political moment.
The Future of Truth is a multi-disciplinary, engaged research project, funded in part by a generous grant from the Henry Luce Foundation, aimed at investigating what truth is now and if, and how, it will matter in the future. Project activities include conferences, a public forum, exhibitions, a podcast series, and related publications. The project is pursued against a background of three convictions: that there is a pressing practical and political need to examine these questions, that doing so at this moment calls for new theoretical approaches, and that these approaches must not be academically isolated, but draw on collaborative insights from art, science, and philosophy.
