Center for Media at Risk Launch Symposium, Panel 1: Digital

The Center for Media at Risk, directed by Professor Barbie Zelizer, formally launched in April 2018. Entitled “What is Media at Risk?,” its launch symposium was a cross-disciplinary conference that brought together media practitioners, media scholars, and media assist organizations to define what “media at risk” means globally in circumstances of political intimidation and what can be done to resist it.

In this video, Bethany Wiggan moderates the first panel, "Digital," which featured the following presentations:

  • Maria Ressa: Exponential Lies (and How to Fight Them)
  • Samuel Sinyangwe: The Challenges and Possibilities of Digital Activism
  • Amy Siskind: Writing History in the Age of Social Media
  • Zeynep Tufekci: The New Censorship: If Everything is Potentially Fake, What Role for Journalism?
