About The Series

The CIVICA Data Science Seminar series is a unique multi-disciplinary series focused on applications and methodologies of data science for the social, political, and economic world.

Session 3 Fall 2022 Details

Surveys, social media, newspapers, and television give us different perspectives on election dynamics. They can also be challenging to work with.

In session 3 of the Fall 2022 CIVICA Data Science Seminar Series, Prof. Lisa Singh from Georgetown University will shed light on the different methods used to gain insight into opinions and conversations from these different data sources during the 2020 US presidential elections. Through the talk, we will look at "what sticks" through a campaign season and the impact of misinformation on different data streams.
