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, author of Cyberwar: How Russian Hackers and Trolls Helped Elect a President, 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.
This event will be held at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center, Auditiorium H.
