Finalizing the research paper — step 1

Finalizing the research paper — step 1

Post truth and public art were the two keywords my research began on. I even identified a research question in the previous blog post. I just finished reading Lee McIntyre’s book and it cemented the fact that the post-truth era is intriguing and very pertinent, and definitely something I want to include into my research.           So here’s the title and abstract I have so far, bear in mind that this abstract is the pre-completion abstract and will probably become more succinct once my paper is complete: Public Art in the Post-Truth Era A commentary on …
