TO BE RESCHEDULED: Behind the Book: "How to (Really) Lose the Information War with Nina Jankowicz"

via Zoom

Posted

Update: This event will be rescheduled to a future date.

When Nina Jankowicz’s first book on online disinformation was profiled in The New Yorker, she expected attention but not an avalanche of abuse and harassment, predominantly from men, online. All women in politics, journalism, and academia now face untold levels of harassment and abuse in online spaces. Together with the world’s leading extremism researchers, Jankowicz wrote one of the definitive reports on this troubling phenomenon.

Drawing on rigorous research into the treatment of Kamala Harris — the first woman vice-president — and other political and public figures, Nina also uses her own experiences to provide a step-by-step plan for dealing with harassment, abuse, doxing, and disinformation in online spaces.

Nina Jankowicz is an internationally recognized expert on disinformation and democratization. Since 2017, Jankowicz has held fellowships at the Wilson Center, where she has been affiliated with the Kennan Institute and the Science and Technology Innovation Program.

Jankowicz holds a master’s degree from the Center for Eurasian, Russian, and East European Studies at Georgetown University’s School of Foreign Service. She is a proud alumna of Bryn Mawr College. She is fluent in Russian and speaks proficient Ukrainian and Polish. In her spare time, Jankowicz enjoys acting in local musical theater productions and hiking. She lives outside of Washington, DC with her husband, son, dog, and cat.
