An investigation into the influence of stealth campaigns
Does it feel like our society is more divided than ever? It’s not your imagination — and it’s not an accident. Project DATA (Digital Ad Tracking and Analysis) is the first large-scale research project into how digital advertising influences elections and who is behind it.
Join us to hear Professor Young Mie Kim, professor of journalism and mass communication at UW–Madison and the principal investigator of Project DATA. Professor Kim will present her recent research article, “Russia, Cambridge Analytica, and What Else in the Elections? Groups and Targets behind Divisive Issue Campaigns on Facebook.” Kim will discuss how foreign governments influenced the 2016 election, what this means for America’s midterm elections — and what we can do about it.
