Disinformation: Creation, Dissemination and Pedagogical Responses, a 2-day conference at the 4th Space

Disinformation is the cognitive, political, and social plague of the 21st century. Its prevalence and in/visibility, with lightning-fast images, memes, and stories, regardless of verity thanks to social media algorithms, AI, and verbal gamesmanship, is witnessed in the flood of (mis)representations of the catastrophic events in Israel/Gaza, the 2024 USA Presidential election, and rising Hindu nationalism in India that exposes religious minorities to unspeakable violence. The explosion of maliciously fabricated content has spurred specialists in scientific and humanistic disciplines (Information Studies, Media Studies, Library Studies, Political Science, Cultural Studies, Education) to identify, analyze, and disrupt disinformation.

What has been missing is a common space for sharing and refining approaches to research and scholarship in disinformation with concrete pedagogical strategies for combatting it. The Disinformation: Creation, Dissemination and Pedagogical Responses conference is a unique, interdisciplinary two-day series of events of academic conversations, pedagogical workshops, film screenings, and art-based performances at Concordia University on April 29 and 30, 2024 where these thorny issues will be tackled from multiple perspectives.

The goal is to engage participants in critical methods to combat disinformation and equip teachers and professors with pedagogical methodologies and tools to cultivate students' media and reality literacy.
