FRANK Talks: Weaponized Narrative: Information Warfare as the New Battlespace – Greer

June 19 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

| Free

Dr. Braden Allenby, Arizona State University, President’s Professor of Civil, Environmental, and Sustainable Engineering, and Lincoln Professor of Engineering and Ethics

Weaponized narrative is the latest evolution in information warfare, focusing specifically on the role of new media in shaping opinion. Weaponized narratives attack the shared beliefs and values of a person or society, and undercut culture and resiliency.  Adversaries use tactics such as deceptive information to attack identity, manipulate narratives/stories, and create emotional and psychological damage.  What are the effects on our psychology and behavior?  How do we begin to understand the role of information warfare in social media, news, and marketing? Can weaponized narratives cause social polarization?  Join us for this timely FRANK Talk to discuss the impact of information warfare on public opinion, civic engagement and democracy.
