Media Literacy as National Defense | Part II

Conversations exploring national governments and media literacy education


Governments around the world are looking to media literacy for a number of solutions from security to defense to diplomacy. Especially as funding and employment opportunities in these areas arise, it is important to understand how government agencies conceptualize media literacy and what they hope it will achieve. During this three-session conversation, we will hear from media literacy experts whose work intersects with government priorities and we'll explore our own thoughts and questions about the use of media literacy in these spaces.

Join us for any or all of this three-part series, hosted in partnership with the Center for Media Literacy (CML), which continues on November 8 @12pm Eastern. Hosted by CML’s Monika Hanley, this session will focus more specifically on government efforts to counter misinformation and disinformation as part of national security.
