Description

The tension between those people trying to share accurate information and those individuals, organizations and governments trying to misinform the public has had a major impact on the available information for civil discourse. Join us for the second in a two-part symposium to look at how this issue is playing out around the world. This event will feature the launch of a first-of-its-kind Global Civil Discourse Map built by GVSU Civil Discourse and Computer Science students and presentations by GVSU faculty member Vandana Pednekar-Magal and acclaimed Chilean journalist Alejandra Matus. 

The event is co-sponsored by the Big Data Initiative, the School of Communications, the Department of Writing, and the Digital Studies Program.
