MediaFutures – Propaganda Narratives & Tech Journalism

Learn how to identify and analyse propaganda in modern media, and understand how it can change our perception. Luiss Data Lab, partner of the European innovation hub MediaFutures, presents a new Media Literacy online event on 12th-13th September.

“Building Narratives: How Propaganda can change our perception” will take place on Monday 12th September, from 15.00 to 18.00 CEST. This session will focus on conspiracy narratives and propaganda techniques, which have come to dominate our national and international political and social discourse like in no other time in modern history. It is therefore essential that we understand the operation of the conspiracy narrative, its psychological allure, political function, and devastating social consequences. The main purpose of this session is to engage in critical discourse on the way audiences are consuming news in a technology and mobile-driven era, and to learn how to apply best practices in new media organisations in a digital environment.
