The new MediaFuture’s Media Literacy

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 two new Media Literacy online events on 16th – 17th Febraury.

16 February 15:00 – 17:00 (CET) Tracking Propaganda narratives in media. 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.
