Media Manipulation, Fake News, and Trolls: A Critical Media Workshop and Skill-Share

Workshop | September 28 | 5:30-7 p.m. | 405 Moffitt Undergraduate Library

 Cody Hennesy, E-Learning Librarian, Doe Library; Sine Hwang-Jensen, Asian American Studies & Comparative Ethnic Studies Librarian, Ethnic Studies Library; Corliss Lee, American Cultures Librarian, Doe Library


Starting from a research justice framework, we will consider how different forms of knowledge production—cultural, spiritual, experiential, mainstream, and institutional—relate to political power. From there we look to recent trends in media manipulation, including political disinformation campaigns, fake news, and how trolling subcultures propagate their ideas online by gaming social media platforms and users. By considering our own media consumption and production, we will work to develop a more critical media practice to combat misinformation, fight injustice, and empower marginalized communities.
