The Polish team, working within CEDMO on issues related to media education, has planned, among other things, a series of 10 videos and podcasts on the broad – cultural, social, media – contexts of disinformation. The first video and podcast were released on 19 January 2023.
Podcasts and videos are designed as conversations with specialists – researchers, journalists, science popularisers – whose work deals with the diverse contexts of disinformation activity in its broadest sense. The concept for the series was prepared and the interviews were conducted by Dr Katarzyna Bąkowicz of SWPS University.
“By preparing a series of in-depth interviews presenting different ways of looking at disinformation and different contexts and functions of information in social life, we wanted to show the whole complexity of the issue. This is because we are convinced that disinformation and social susceptibility to it is rooted in many spheres of social life – in our history, culture, attitude to science, but also attitude to other people,” says Karina Stasiuk-Krajewska, Ph.D., professor at SWPS University and coordinator of CEDMO in Poland.
The first podcast and film is a conversation with Professor Adam Leszczyński, Polish historian, sociologist, journalist and publicist.
The quality of information depends on a great many factors, including the history of a country and nation. Managing this area of our social life affects how we understand information and whether we learn to recognise disinformation and deal with it. Professor Adam Leszczyński discusses how we navigate the world of information, taking into account historical contexts, and what makes us susceptible to disinformation.
