Science miscommunication online

All are welcome to join us for this talk entitled, ‘Science miscommunication online. Troubles with modern information technologies’

The way information is being communicated through online mediation allows for diversity of narrations to emerge, challenging conventional power relations in knowledge production. Relaying to existing scholarship and her own original research, Magdalena Goralska will speak on the consequences of the digital age communication on public perception, collaborative re-production, and spreading of scientific knowledge. She will present the most current challenges, referring to a number of case studies on health-related and technology-related communication issues. In her research she is investigating how complex, often controversial information are being communicated, putting much of her focus on the role of social networking sites and collaboration communities.

Magdalena Goralska is a Kellogg Scholar, and a postgraduate student at the Oxford Internet Institute, where she studies science communication and misinformation online, co-operating with the Computational Propaganda Project. She is also a researcher at the Kozminski University in Warsaw.

This event is part of Bletchley Park Week 2018
