The Symposium on Misinformation & Marginalization will explore global and comparative frames for mis- and disinformation studies that center marginalized perspectives. This symposium will feature panels and discussions that investigate how online mis- and disinformation spreads and functions differently within different communities, how it can contribute to further harm in such communities, and how critical disinformation studies perspectives might transform the field as a whole. Featuring a keynote from Sarah Banet-Weiser and panels led by Marie Hermanova, Pranav Malhotra, and Robyn Caplan on topics of gender and sexuality, diasporic communities, algorithmic amplification, race, and religion and misinformation.

Organized by CITAP postdoctoral researchers Yvonne Eadon, Nanditha Narayanamoorthy, Qunfang Wu and Yiping Xia.
