Vian Bakir

Bangor University , Professor of Journalism and Political Communication

I research the interplay between journalism and political communication across 4 areas:
– Disinformation, propaganda and Emotional AI
– Issues of trust, accuracy and credibility in journalism;
– Media agenda-building struggles;
– The security state and public accountability.

I engage with stakeholders regularly to disseminate and co-create scholarly insights with parliaments, NGOs, trade unions, artists and technology companies.

As an inter-disciplinary scholar, I have won awards from diverse funding bodies including UK Research Councils (Arts and Humanities Research Council, Economic and Social Research Council, and Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council). A list of my funded projects are at: 0000-0002-6828-8384
