Panelists: Vasily Gatov, Adrian Chen. Moderator: Rachel Rosenfelt
Kompromat, disinformation, or propaganda — whether you think these are the same, different, or otherwise related, it is clear that all of them will be prominent in our lives for the foreseeable future. Examining who benefits from these media practices and how that shapes our future political environment is of primary importance. It is critical to take an international perspective, with a special focus on Russia: Has Russia’s role in the worldwide politics of disinformation been accurately described? Instead of focusing on the supposed unprecedented nature of Putin’s Russia, might there be other analogues for our current politics that provide cautionary tales for this uncertain time?
Keynote Panel 4: Twitter and Tear Gas (7:30 p.m.-9:00 p.m.)
Panelist: Zeynep Tufekçi. Moderator: John Knefel
Our century has already seen its fair share of world-changing political events. The web’s role in these events is no longer in question, but the character, scope, and political valence of its influence certainly is. How social movements form with and around social media is a pressing question with still too few answers. Join Zeynep Tufekçi, who has spoken at each Theorizing the Web, as she sits down with John Knefel to discusses her new book Twitter and Tear Gas.
