Amitava Kumar: Meaning in a Post-Truth World

Prominent author and academic Amitava Kumar grew up in Patna, a town in India known for crookedness in high places. In A Time Outside This Time, he explores a writer’s quest to separate truth from lies in the era of Trump’s presidency, the inflammatory 24-hour news cycle and a mysterious new virus. What results is a meditation on the madness of misinformation and the meaning of truth.

Amitava Kumar is appearing remotely.
