Event: EDMO BELUX Lunch Lecture – Linking disinformation and democracy: results from a qualitative audience study (18 March 2024)


Date: 18 March 2024
Time: 13:00-14:00 CET
Location: Online event

Our EDMO BELUX Lunch Lecture on 18 March from 13:00 to 14:00 CET focused on how individuals make sense of the nexus between disinformation and democracy (i.e., “info-democratic disorders”). Geoffroy Patriarche and Victor Wiard, UCLouvain – Saint-Louis – Bruxelles, built upon the concept of “folk theory” and – responding to the call for more research on the reception of disinformation – presented the results of their qualitative audience study in Belgium and Luxembourg.

The EDMO BELUX Lunch Lectures are a series of informal gatherings on research topics such as disinformation, hate speech, polarisation, and digitalisation. During each Lunch Lecture, a guest speaker presents their work in a 30-minute talk, after which we open the floor for discussion. Lunch Lectures take place online and can be joined by everyone who is interested and who has registered beforehand.
