Professor Philip Howard (Professor of Internet Studies at the Oxford Internet Institute and Professorial Fellow of Balliol) will give a talk entitled ‘The Politics and Political Economy of Computational Propaganda in Advanced Democracies’. This will be a discussion of the interactions between social media and democracy: will Facebook kill democracy or save it?

Professor Howard investigates the impact of digital media on global political life, his research demonstrating how new information technologies are used in both civic engagement and social control in countries around the world.
