Troubling Matters: Disinformation and the challenges of more ‘critical thinking’ | Fulbright Poland
The webinar offers a nuanced look into disinformation campaigns and presents a researcher’s perspective on these phenomena. Join us for a presentation followed by a Q&A session, in which Dr. Ahmer Arif will talk about human-centered responses to disinformation that go beyond mere fact checking.
In this webinar, we will discuss how our social computing systems are being used to intentionally spread misleading information and what we — as educators and designers — might do to address this. Drawing on examples from his research into disinformation campaigns, Dr. Arif will add nuance to our understanding of what they are, and confront four commonly held misconceptions about how these campaigns work.
