Cyberwar: Coping with the New Global Challenge

CyberwarMonday, April 1
4:30 PM
DHMC – Auditorium H

Computers, networks and online control systems are increasingly being used by state actors and others for espionage, sabotage and cyberattacks.  In this lecture, Kathleen Hall Jamieson will marshal the Russian troll posts, unique polling data, analyses of how the press used the hacked content, and a synthesis of media effects research to argue that, although not certain, it is probable that the Russians helped elect the 45th president of the United States.

Kathleen Hall Jamieson is the Elizabeth Ware Packard Professor at the Annenberg School for Communication at the University of Pennsylvania and Director of the Annenberg Public Policy Center. She has authored or co-authored 16 books, including "Cyberwar: How Russian Hackers and Trolls Helped Elect a President," a prize-winning effort published by Oxford University Press. She is author of several other award-winning books and recipient of many awards in the humanities and political science fields.

Copies of her Cyberwar: How Russian Hackers and Trolls Helped Elect a President What We Don't, Can't, and Do Know book will be available for sale and signing.

Free and open to the public.

Refugees & Asylum Seekers

Refugees and Asylum SeekersFriday, April 19
12:00 PM
Jesse's Restaurant
224 Lebanon Street
Hanover, NH

Register here. $30 per person.

Refugees and asylum seekers are confused in popular discourse with immigrants. The U.S. accepts refugees and asylum seekers for humanitarian reasons, not as is the case with immigrants, because they are related to U.S. citizens or because we need their labor. Traditionally, the U.S. has led the world in resettling refugees, but we cannot take them all.

Evangeline Monroe is a retired foreign service officer whose first tour of duty was as a visa officer. She took a systematic look at immigration in 2005 when mass demonstrations protested (failed) legislative attempts to convert immigration misdemeanors into felonies. She has led over 20 courses at OSHER@Dartmouth on various topics, including immigration.

Pre-registration is required. Open to members only.
