Interested in becoming a student researcher?
The Global DisInformation Lab (GDIL) was established in 2020 at the University of Texas at Austin to encourage collaborative interdisciplinary academic research on the global circulation of a broad spectrum of information, misinformation, and disinformation via digital media.
Our faculty and student affiliates are committed to promoting a deeper understanding of national and regional contexts in which such information is generated as well as the ways in which it is harvested, circulated, and weaponized. Our hope is that such research will generate policy recommendations and possible solutions to the looming problems of what many have called the “post-truth” world.
