Post-Truth & Cyberspace

The contemporary age of hyper-information provides the necessary conditions for the intentional and systematic construction of information flows that create virtual interpretations of facts and events which are at variance with reality, and which aim at manipulating public consciousness to the advantage of interested parties. This phenomenon has allowed us to talk about the post-truth effect. Identification of the manipulative potential of new information technologies, description of the types of manipulation, and development of effective ways to counter them is an important task of the humanitarian scientific community. We expect the papers submitted will contribute to: 1) further study of the deception discourse, identification of its formation and functioning mechanisms, 2) identification of active dissemination areas and use of the post-truth manipulative potential, description of its manifestation features in individual discursive practices, 3) formation of effective ways to counter new modern manipulative technologies.
