Anna Ruth Leith Award for Excellence

This project developed a coding schema for analysis of incidents of mis- and disinformation present on social media within a rapid response framework. The goal was to support responses that both inform near-term detection and response to mis- and disinformation and that support long-term mixed-methods academic research at various levels. The project specifically focused on problematic information with the potential to negatively impact trust in elections through voter disenfranchisement with respect to the US 2022 midterm elections.
