This episode examines how science and research can support us in combating disinformation. What do we know about this phenomenon? Can we even agree on a precise definition? What are the trends, obstacles and hopes in studying disinformation messages?
The podcasts and videos bring you conversations with specialists – researchers, journalists, popularizers of science – who, in their work, deal with diverse contexts of disinformation activities in the broadest sense.
The concept for the series was prepared, and the interviews were conducted by Dr. Katarzyna Bakowicz 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 are rooted in many spheres of social life – in our history, culture, attitude to science, but also an attitude to other people,” says Karina Stasiuk-Krajewska, Ph.D., professor at SWPS University, coordinator of CEDMO in Poland.
