The Disinformation and Media Literacy SIG 

A new Strategic Interest Group (SIG) has been formed as part of The Trust & Technology Initiative. The SIG in Disinformation and Media Literacy is convened by Sander van der Linden (Social Psychology) and Rory Finnin (Slavonic Studies). 

The Disinformation and Media Literacy SIG is a university wide community of scholars and practitioners committed to exploring and advancing proactive and creative interventions against disinformation and ‘fake news’. Drawing together experts across a range of disciplines, it seeks to bring cutting-edge research to bear on contemporary policy discussions and to foster closer collaboration in the sphere of information literacy between scholars, policymakers and stakeholders in journalism, education, business and diplomacy. 

If you're interested, please to stay up to date with the initiative!
