In this installment of the W. E. B. Du Bois Research Institute Colloquium Series, Michael Rain, a storyteller and founder of the media and research company ENODI, will present on his project "Storytelling and Technology to Expand the World’s Perception of Diverse Communities", which will explore constructing an appropriate and effective ethical lens to address misinformation and disinformation affecting Black and immigrant groups in private digital messaging networks (PDMNs), with considerations for trust, cultural context, and historical perspectives for diverse communities. PDMNs are closed digital spaces such as WhatsApp groups, Discord channels, and Slack communities. This research will include an eye toward culturally relevant political content directed toward these communities.

Hutchins Center events and exhibitions are accessible, free, and open to the public, unless otherwise noted.
