This seminar will examine fact-checking and the production of political knowledge through the lenses of digital fact-checking start-ups during the 2015 Argentinean election and citizens’ exposure to fact-checking in the US general election of 2014.
Tanya Filer, who is a Research Associate on the Leverhulme-funded Conspiracy and Democracy Project based at CRASSH, will speak on the Argentinean case.
Jason Reifler, Professor of Political Science at the University of Exeter, will speak on the US case.
These scholars will open this seminar in dialogue, followed by a conversation among all participants on these topics and their connections to transparency. Accordingly, we ask that all participants read their pre-circulated papers.
