POSTPONED: Peter Daou - Digital Civil War: Confronting the Far-Right Menace

Upcoming Event
Monday, May 6, 2019 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

This event has had to be postponed due to a scheduling issue but will be rescheduled.

Raised in Beirut, Daou has served as a digital media strategist for and advisor to political figures including Hillary Clinton and John Kerry, a role that has positioned him to observe first-hand how the rise of far-right extremism has fueled a digital war across a wide swath of social media. Fighting with words and images designed to intimidate, enrage, and inflict psychological injury, these combatants—which include not just trolls and hackers, but activists, pundits, politicians, and many others—are attacking the very bedrock of democracy. To stop the right-wing digital assault, Daou argues, it’s necessary to understand how their value systems and strategies play out online.
