Calling BS

In spring 2017, iSchool Assistant Professor Jevin West and Biology Professor Carl Bergstrom launched a new course at the University of Washington, "Calling Bullshit in the Age of Big Data."

The topic struck a nerve. The "Calling Bullshit" website had a viral effect right after its launch in January; news organizations across the country covered the story; and the first 1-credit class was booked up within one minute after registration began.

Below you'll find some of the news coverage and resources related to the class, beginning with the first lecture, now available on the iSchool YouTube channel:
