Media & Democracy at ICA 2019

The Media & Democracy program was thrilled to be at the International Communication Association (ICA) 2019 annual meeting in Washington, DC.

As part of the ICA proceedings, we sponsored an ICA theme panel entitled "A Modern History of the Disinformation Age" at the Washington Hilton, held on May 25. The panelists presented research from our December 2018 workshop of the same name.

We also co-hosted an SSRC reception on May 28, 2019 at Jack Rose Dining Saloon in collaboration with the Social Data Initiative.

Finally, we were proud to co-sponsor "The Rise of Platforms: Individual, Institutional, and Governance Questions for Communication Research," an ICA post-conference that convened an interdisciplinary and international group of scholars to present comparative analyses of platforms across economics, political, and social contexts. The conference took place at George Washington University in Washington, DC and was held on May 29, 2019.
