Center for Public Policy Book Talk

Tuesday, February 7, 2023

4:00 PM-5:00 PM

With the prevalence of disinformation geared to instill doubt rather than clarity, Creating Chaos Online unmasks disinformation when it attempts to pass as deliberation in the public sphere and distorts the democratic processes. Asta ZelenkauskaitÄ— finds that repeated tropes justifying Russian trolling were found to circulate across not only all analyzed media platforms’ comments but also across two analyzed sociopolitical contexts suggesting the orchestrated efforts behind messaging.

Asta ZelenkauskaitÄ— is Associate Professor of Communication at Drexel University and a member of the Center for Science, Technology and Society. Dr. ZelenkauskaitÄ— holds an affiliation with Vilnius Tech University (Lithuania).

RSVP – This book talk is free and open to the public. If you would like to join us, please RSVP.
