How Do you Trust? On Infrastructural Meaning-making and the Need for Self-reflection

Forskningsoutput: Kapitel i bok/rapport/Conference proceedingKapitel samlingsverk

Abstract

The chapter focuses on the notion of critical evaluation of information, which is an important part of media and information literacy (MIL). The concepts frictions of relevance and infrastructural meaningmaking are introduced to shed light on the information infrastructure’s significance for MIL in today’s digital media ecology. Furthermore, the chapter discusses some of the limitations inherent in placing the
responsibility for evaluating information predominantly on the individual, thus challenging the straightforward connection between MIL and democracy.
