Michael Wagner

The League of Women Voters Whitewater Area invites the public to attend an illuminating program by Michael Wagner, UW-Madison Professor of Journalism & Mass Communication, on The Impact of Misinformation, Disinformation, & Conspiracy Theories on Voting, to be held on Thursday evening, April 18th, 6:30 PM – 7:30 PM in the Irvin L. Young Memorial Library, 431 West Center Street in Whitewater.

This is a special election year program in which Professor Wagner will discuss the influence of misinformation, disinformation, and conspiracy theories on voting and their relationship to political intimidation and violence. Michael spoke about this topic in November 2022, on the PBS Program, Here & Now, hosted by Frederica Freyberg. He earned his Bachelor’s Degree in Journalism at the University of Nebraska in Lincoln and completed his Ph.D. in Political Science from Indiana University. Professor Wagner centers his research, teaching, and service on the question, “How well does democracy work?”
