Foreign Interference & Propaganda: What We Know and What to Expect | NYU Center for Social Media and Politics

March 1, 2023 @ 12:00 pm1:00 pm

Since Russia’s attempt to interfere with the 2016 election, the political and scholarly community has focused considerable attention on foreign influence in American politics. Researchers and media have investigated the scale and impact of Russia’s campaign, and U.S. lawmakers are now increasingly concerned about national security risks surrounding China’s ownership of TikTok. What do we know about foreign influence since 2016 and how do we expect it to shift in the coming years? This virtual event brings together leading scholars to discuss how Russia and China have used traditional and digital media to shape global perceptions, the role state-controlled agencies play in advancing propaganda, and how tactics could continue to change heading into the 2024 election cycle.

Panelists:

Renée DiResta – Research Manager, Stanford Internet Observatory

Kathleen Hall Jamieson – Elizabeth Ware Packard Professor of Communication, University of Pennsylvania’s Annenberg School for Communication

Jennifer Pan – Professor of Communication, Stanford University

Joshua A. Tucker – Co-Director, NYU’s Center for Social Media and Politics (moderator)

This event is co-sponsored by the NYU Jordan Center for the Advanced Study of Russia.
