Goodkind and Shook receive new grant

Professors Sara Goodkind and Jeff Shook are Co-PIs on a new grant from the University of Pittsburgh Center for Social & Urban Research entitled, Fielding the 'Trust and Disinformation Survey in Allegheny County.'

The $20,000 award will be used to understand sources of disinformation in Allegheny County and Western PA. With Co-Is Beth Schwanke (Pitt Cyber), Lara Putnam (History), and Michael Colaresi (Political Science), they are coordinating the survey work for the team and this grant will provide the funding to pilot and implement a survey in Allegheny County that is intended to be an annual survey focused on sources of information that people rely on in order to build the larger project focused on disinformation.
