George Monteiro Conference Room, 159 George Street

Combining the long experience (eight years) as a victim of fake news and hate speech due to sexual orientation, including communication strategies and policies thought of as antidotes during this experiment, Wyllys analyzes ways in which fake news and hate speech articulate with each other and impact voter subjectivities in political and decision-making processes.
