Event description

Description

ECU School of Arts & Humanities, CREATEC

Presented by Mr Andrew O’ Connor (ABC), Associate Professor Trevor Cullen (ECU), Associate Professor Joseph Fernandes (Curtin University), Mr Mario D’Orazio (Channel 7), and Dr Kayt Davies (ECU).


Ask yourself, how often do you fact-check a story before reposting it? How do you distinguish facts, legitimate debate and propaganda? Since the Brexit vote and the Donald Trump victory, a lively debate has filled newspapers, social media and the airwaves with arguments on the topic. While detailed social science research is yet to emerge, a lot can be learnt from existing studies of online and offline behavior.
