The Securing MediaMakers Forum explores the growing need for security -- ranging from data encryption to legal teams to protected work environments -- among investigative journalists and documentary filmmakers. While this is an historical issue, panelists address these issues in the contemporary context, calling out First Amendment erosions brought by the Trump administration and his sanctioning of threats and contempt for journalists and political opponents.

Data at Risk Colloquium: Amy Balkin

Existing environmental data – from Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) reports to emission market data – are being reshaped by artists to engage with a variety of publics and audiences. These materials are often available yet ‘invisible’ – opaque, bureaucratic, stultifying, upsetting, or otherwise challenging.

Center for Media at Risk Lecture: Ruth Ben-Ghiat

Strongmen now rule over some of the most populous countries on earth. This talk looks at the character and appeal of these authoritarian rulers. Press policies, strategies of repression, personality cults, masculinity and how to resist the strongman will be examined. Ben-Ghiat will argue that the way to understand Donald Trump is not through psychiatric diagnosis but by looking at him in the context of a century of authoritarian rulers from Mussolini onward. 

Center for Media at Risk Colloquium: Ruth Ben-Ghiat

Visualizing fascism might seem an easy endeavor. Most of us can easily conjure mental pictures of right-wing regimes. Uniformed men on the march, children performing in sports arenas, and the dictator in his uniformed splendor, all come up from a cursory Google search. This talk looks at the possibilities and perils of utilizing an image bank that replicates Fascism's leader/mass dynamic and its erasure of the individual, and suggests ways to use Fascism's propaganda archive to uncover small moments of resistance and ambivalence that too often go unexplored.
