Fake News in Digital Cultures


( / )

Please select all options.

Is fake news an alien and deliberate act intended to harm, or the logical outcome of digital culture and shifts in the concept and practice of truth, trust and creativity?

This book presents a new approach to the question by looking past the problems of the present toward the continuing evolution of new media.

The authors explore both misinformation and disinformation, including the development of technology such as deepfake, and how they intersect with conspiracy theories, populism, global crises, disenfranchisement, attempts at regulation, and the promotion of digital literacies.
