Vancouver Sunday Meeting: Heidi Tworek - What's novel about fake news?

Dr Heidi Tworek works on media, international organizations, and transatlantic relations. She is a member of the Science and Technology Studies program, the Language Science Initiative, and the Institute for European Studies at UBC. She is a visiting fellow at the Joint Center for History and Economics at Harvard University as well as a non-resident fellow at the German Marshall Fund of the United States and the Canadian Global Affairs Institute.

Heidi is committed to bringing a historical sensibility to policy discussions. She has briefed or advised officials and policymakers from multiple European and North American governments on media, cybersecurity, democracy, and the digital economy. One of her projects in this area is an international comparison of policies on hate speech and disinformation. This project is funded by a Partnership Engage Grant from the Canadian Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council.
