Manipulate my fear: How new forms of (mis)information and processes of political subjection contribute to the erosion of democracy in Brazil
Solta a Língua special guest Jean Wyllys de Matos Santos is a Brazilian lecturer, journalist, politician, and gay-rights activist. Former member of parliament, Brazil.
Combining the long experience (eight years) as a victim of fake news and hate speech due to sexual orientation, including communication strategies and policies thought of as antidotes during this experiment, Wyllys analyzes ways in which fake news and hate speech articulate with each other and impact voter subjectivities in political and decision-making processes.
