2022 Blalock Lecture Series schedule
Poster with text: Harmful Political Content in a Fragmented Digital Media Environment
Harmful Political Content in a Fragmented Digital Media Environment
Jo Lukito, University of Texas
July 26, 7:30pm EDT
Register here!

Though we often talk about the digital media ecosystem as one entity, in reality, it is made up of many platforms, technological infrastructures, and discrete communities. As a result of this platformized nature, dangerous political content--including hate speech, calls for violence, conspiracy theories, and mis/disinformation--can proliferate in unexpected ways, moving across niche and mainstream platforms to circumvent moderation efforts. In this lecture, we will explore the dynamics of a multi-platform media ecology, its implications for political communication, and strategies for studying harmful political content in this environment, using the 2020 U.S. Presidential election and the QAnon conspiracy theory as cases.
