About the event

The expansion of access to information through the internet, and the rise of almost unlimited sources of news and opinion has given rise to an unprecedented spread of disinformation and misrepresentation about marginalized and oppressed populations that negatively impacts young and old alike. This workshop will examine both historical contexts for this decay of evidence and fact-based journalism and commentary, and expose specific language and strategies being used to intensify bias and discrimination.

  • All sessions will be via Zoom.
  • Each day will begin at 9 am, and wrap up at 4 pm. A one hour lunch break and morning/afternoon breaks will be built in.
