Combatting Election Disinformation

Join PEN America disinformation experts for a presentation and discussion on how we use psychological science and journalism to work against disinformation, especially in the context of election season. We’ll look at specific election-related narratives and explore the psychological tendencies of the human brain that they prey on. Then we will use that knowledge to create strategies to stop the flow of misleading information. Drawing from a panel discussion with journalists and psychologists that PEN America hosted in September, the presentation will feature an interdisciplinary approach to the issue.

Hosted by the League of Women Voters Detroit and the Detroit Public Library, partnering in talks promoting voter education and tools for action.
