Proposals are invited for papers for a special issue of the Journal of Media Literacy Education on the theme of Media Literacy and Fake News.
The rise of so-called “fake news” has been a global phenomenon, with increases in propaganda, disinformation, clickbait, journalistic error and polarizing political partisanship.
The journal seeks submissions that explore the topic of “fake news” in relation to both formal and informal educational environments. Submissions from a variety of perspectives on, and conceptions of, role of social media and networked societies, youth voice, civic agency, platform economics, the use of data personalization in the context of civic discourse, and the examination of new forms of propaganda, disinformation, clickbait and conspiracy theories, pseudoscience and hoaxes are also invited.
Deadline for submissions is on December 31. Further information is available here.
