DescriptionThis webinar will focus on how misinformation, denial and distortion of facts, and other aspects of post-truth politics take shape in different European countries. Researchers from Denmark, Finland and Switzerland will discuss their recent and ongoing research with a focus on how the politicized rhetoric of immigration, racism and misogyny is constructed and challenged in media environments.
The webinar will be held on Zoom. Registration link (by 27.4): https://elomake.helsinki.fi/lomakkeet/93121/lomakkeet.html
