Global Studies program to host roundtable discussion on Russian social media and information warfare
The UW-Green Bay Global Studies program is sponsoring a roundtable discussion on Russian social media and information warfare on Friday, February 10, from 12:00-1:30pm. This roundtable is free and open to the public and will be held in the Alumni Room of the University Union on the main UW-Green Bay campus. Titled, “Burning Down the Marketplace: The Kremlin’s Plan for Western Information Spaces”, this discussion will feature guest speaker Alexander Rojavin.
Alexander Rojavin synthesizes his background in theater and law as a multilingual intelligence, media, and policy analyst specializing in information war. Having originally gotten his start by applying formal cinematic analysis to Ukrainian and Russian newscasts, he is currently editing a book on modern Russian cinema as a key battlefield in the Kremlin’s information war. In his spare time, he moonlights as a published literary translator.
For those who are unable to attend in person, a Zoom option is available here.
