The American Political Science Association (APSA) annual meeting & exhibition was held from the 8th to the 13th of September. Two researchers from the GEODE team had the opportunity to discuss their research.
Frédérick Douzet first intervened in a round table entitled “Bush v. Gore 2.0? Foreign Interference, Incompetence and Misinformation in 2020”. With other researchers, she reviewed the challenges posed to the administration during the 2020 presidential elections in the US. She also presented a study on the monitoring of the propagation of Russian content on the Web during the 2020 primaries. This work is the result of a collaboration between Frédérick Douzet, Kave Salamatian, Kevin Limonier and Stanford University researcher, Buce Cain.
On the same panel, Colin Gerard also presented a study carried out with Guilhem Marotte and Loqman Salamatian on the mapping of the dissemination of Russian narratives on social networks in France.
Their study highlights innovative methodologies for understanding and mapping the dissemination of stories produced by Russian news agencies (RT and Sputnik in France), which are increasingly popular on social networks.
