Pardee RAND Graduate School is pleased to host a discussion on the role “narrative” plays in policy and social change. Todd Richmond, director of the Pardee RAND Tech & Narrative Lab, will moderate a conversation with RAND senior information scientist Elizabeth Bodine-Baron, Academy Award-winning® producer Ed Saxon, and Pardee RAND student Hilary Reininger on how storytelling and the ways we communicate inform some of the world’s greatest challenges. They will discuss the American narrative, conspiracy theories, misinformation, and what can be done to change the narrative.
