This resource was created to supplement The Ellison Center’s 2021-2022 Lecture Series - Scheming and Subversion: Conspiracy in Post-Soviet Space,
This series presents new research on the role that conspiracy theories, propaganda, and disinformation play in Russia and other post-Soviet states. Nina Jankowicz speaks on her book about the Kremlin’s efforts to undermine democracy abroad through influence operations.
The supplemental curriculum resource guide supports educators, students, and community members in improving their media literacy - understanding and identifying disinformation and fake news. This guide provides insight into how geopolitics, related to Russia, influences multimedia and vice versa, and provides accessible tools to empower students to navigate the role of multimedia sources in our society (print, video, social media, radio, etc.) and assess how they shape public opinion.
