An interview with Dr. James McAdams by Zoe Desch Summary: This podcast will be about the destabilizing effect lies (or the lack of truth) from politicians and public figures can have on a country. A well educated citizenry is important to the democratic process and with the advent of social media information and misinformation are quickly and easily disseminated to the public. This information divides and confuses the electorate such that the truth becomes difficult to find. Dr. McAdams' class on Truth and Politics addresses the danger of losing sight of the truth and the dangers presented by misinformation to liberal democracies. Biography: Dr. McAdams is a faculty member in the Department of Political Science at the University of Notre Dame, where he holds the William M. Scholl Endowed Chair in International Affairs. His primary fields of research and teaching are in comparative politics, international relations, and political history. Between 2002 and 2018, he was Director of the Nanovic Institute for European Studies, an interdisciplinary institute dedicated to the study of contemporary Europe, in the broadest sense of the term. He is also a fellow of the Helen Kellogg Institute for International Studies and the Joan B. Kroc Institute for International Peace Studies. All of these institutes are affiliates of Notre Dame’s Keough School of Global Affairs. He also has a passion for political philosophy.
