Dear all, 

I am going to propose a new Temporary Working Group (TWG) in Computational propaganda and digital authoritarianism. It will be submitted to the European Communication Research and Education Association (ECREA). The call from ECREA can be found here: 

ECREA - Call for proposals for new Temporary Working Groups

This TWG will focus on investigating the ways through which computational propaganda has been employed to disrupt and manipulate online organic communication from theoretical and methodological perspectives. 

If you are interested in being part of this potential TWG, please send me your CV and a short motivation letter by Monday, March 20, 2023. If you have any questions, please get in touch!

Sincerely yours.
