Bay Area Tech Economics Seminar Series: The U.S. 2020 Facebook/Instagram Election Study
This event is open to:
Thursday, September 28th, the Bay Area Tech Economics Seminar Series will kick off its 2023-24 season hosting Matthew Gentzkow, the Landau Professor of Technology and the Economy at Stanford University.
Overview: This project is a novel academic-private sector collaboration designed to study the impact of Facebook and Instagram on key political attitudes and behaviors during the U.S. 2020 elections. Key outcomes include (1) dis/mis/information, knowledge, and (mis)perceptions; (2) political polarization; (3) political participation, both online and offline, including vote choice and turnout; and (4) attitudes and beliefs about democratic norms and the legitimacy of democratic institutions. We will discuss results from recently published papers as well as not-yet-published findings.
Doors will open at 6PM, a reception with light refreshments will follow the talk. Location details for each session will be provided to registered participants. Sign up here to be included on the mailing list.
