Digital Humanities Workshop by Richard Rogers (UvA)

The offices of Google Argentina welcomed us on November 2 for the second workshop on Research Methods organized by MESO Argentina. We had the pleasure of having Richard Rogers, from the University of Amsterdam, as speaker. He shared his work on detection and analysis of fake news. Rogers presented an innovative and global approach to the phenomenon of fake news and encouraged the attendees to study them as complex phenomena.
Prof. Richard Rogers is a Web epistemologist, an area of study where the main claim is that the Web is a knowledge culture distinct from other media. Rogers concentrates on the research opportunities that would have been improbable or impossible without the Internet.
