Immigration Narratives in the Age of Disinformation

"Join Jose Antonio Vargas (Founder and President of Define American) and Dr. Joan Donovan (Assistant Professor of Journalism and Emerging Media Studies at Boston University) for a thought-provoking conversation on the impact of online misinformation and disinformation for immigrant communities.

How can we identify and combat the spread of disinformation?

How do social media platforms perpetuate xenophobic narratives?

What can individuals and communities do to build resilience against disinformation?

Discussion topics will include how technology platforms can be manipulated to spread false narratives and the consequences these may have on immigrant and refugee communities. 

Friday, September 8 · 5:30 - 6:30pm EDT
