Professor José van Dijck on ‘Learning Trust in a Digital Society’
‘This is our University’ - Lecture series
The Faculty Club, in collaboration with the International Neighbour Group, organizes a series of lectures (‘This is our University’) on a range of interesting, compelling topics, delivered by university professors of Utrecht University.
Learning Trust in a Digital Society
José van Dijck (1960) has been Professor of Media and Digital Society at Utrecht University since 2017. Her research focuses on media, social media and media technologies. From 2015 to 2018 she was the first female president of the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences (KNAW). In 2021, she received the Spinoza Prize, the highest academic award in the Netherlands, from the National Science Council; she also received the C. Edward Baker Award from the International Communication Association (ICA) for her lifetime achievements.
In her lecture José van Dijck will address the way in which social media influence the process of ‘learning’: learning to trust information (fake news), the influence of social media on the learning process and the so-called ‘platformization’ of the learning environment. She will refer to some recent examples to illustrate how social media can have an impact.
After the lecture, at around 19.30 hours, dinner with the speaker will be served in an informal setting.
Entrance to the lecture, including welcome drinks, dinner, coffee, tea, is € 25.50. All members of the university community, including (especially) international members of staff, are warmly invited. You’re welcome to bring your partner or friend.
