How are identity and power relations depicted in media texts and textual activity?
Hobbs at Misinfo Con in Kiev
Renee Hobbs is delighted to participate in MisinfoCon in Kiev, May 29 - 30, 2018. Participants explore these questions:
- Can and should some responsibility be placed on the consumers of information/media?
- What role do libraries, galleries, school and afterschool programs, nonprofits and public spaces play? How should platforms and newsrooms respond?
- And what does “literacy at scale” look like to help the millions of people who are just coming online?
- What are the policy and regulatory and self-regulatory implications of each of these responses?
- What do they look like and how do they vary from region to region?
- What promising strategies exist that could be experimented with elsewhere or globally?
- What data is needed to help understand the problem? Is that data available?
- If not, what are the opportunities to make data available, either openly or in a way that is accessible to researchers, policymakers, media and civil society practitioners?
- How can open data initiatives, researchers and platforms work together instead of at odds?
