Course description:

12th Graduate Spring School & Research conference on Comparative Media Systems: Media and Trust co-organized with the ECREA CEE Network

The cultures of trust are different across Europe, linked not only to the present day but also to different histories that shape the present. The broader issue of decreasing trust in institutions and how this impacts democratic governance is also coupled with interpersonal trust in the media. Similarly, trust in media organisations is shaped by different contextual factors in the media system and in different cultural settings, as well as by different practices among media audiences and users. Furthermore, citizens often rely on “trusted systems”, for shopping, banking, health, and everyday sociality. How does this technological trust relate to trust in organisations (governmental, corporate or civil society)?

In the era of automated systems, fake news and deep fakes, how do we understand trust in public communication? How is trust related to truth or fact? In which situations are the editorial, legacy media, the ones that citizens put their trust in? Or, do citizens in certain situations rely more on social media, because the legacy media have been undermined and distrusted alongside with governments, parliaments, and political parties? The situation varies when viewed in the international comparative perspective. What does trust mean for the citizens? How is trust studied methodologically across Europe?
