About the event
Dr. Timothy R. Levine discusses the surprising social science of lying and deception from the perspective of his groundbreaking “truth-default theory.” Levine boils down 30 years of scientific research on the subject and explains why, when it comes to deception, things are often not what they seem. In this talk we will debunk several myths about deception, and explore new scientifically tested approaches to improve lie detection.
Timothy R. Levine is Distinguished Professor and Chair of Communication Studies at UAB. His research has been covered in media outlets such as the New York Times, National Geographic, and NPR. Malcolm Gladwell’s book Talking to Strangers is based on Levine’s work. Levine is the author of Duped: Truth-default Theory and the Social Science of Lying and Deception.
