Hacks, Trolls, and Fake News: What’s Russia Got To Do With It?
April 11, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
Join us for a panel discussion examining media disinformation and manipulation strategies that have been attributed to and orchestrated by Russia vis-á-vis the U.S. and Ukraine. The panelists will address Russian Twitter bots, the state of media and journalism in contemporary Russia, the mediated participation of non-state actors in the Russia-Ukraine conflict (pro-Russia/pro-Ukraine hacker collectives, etc.), and activities of US extremist groups on Russian social media platforms.
Participants: Deen Freelon (UNC-CH), Vasily Gatov (University of Southern California), Tanya Lokot (Dublin City University), and Megan Squire (Elon University). Erinn Whitaker (CSEEES Fellow) will moderate the discussion.
