Harvard Disinformation Workshop

In early October I had the opportunity to present at the international Comparative Approaches to Disinformation Workshop held at Harvard University, an incredible event with phenomenally cutting-edge presentations from around the world (sponsored by The Berkman Klein Center for Internet & Society and the Shorenstein Center on Media, Politics and Public Policy).

My talk, “Affect, Elections, and Social Media: Understanding the Emotional Dimensions of Propaganda,” shared preliminary findings from my current SSHRC funded, three-year research project, which examines the role of emotional expression in social media related to narratives of racial and national identity and belonging, in the context of the recent 2019 Canadian federal election and the upcoming 2020 U.S. election.
