You will learn to install Zotero, capture items into your personal library, generate in text citation and bibliographies, sync to the cloud, and utilize many of the software’s functions.

12:30 PM – 2:00 PM
Grassroots Lobbying and Big Tech, speakers, Yafit Lev-Aretz, Department of Law, Abbey Stemler, Indiana University, and Ira Rubinstein, Information Law Institute
The use of microtargeting ads, which are dependent on the collection and analysis of information about users, raises concerns from privacy advocates. With the Cambridge-Analytica scandal exposing the risks associated with microtargeting in political contexts, these concerns have been heightened. The debate around microtargeting has recently further intensified, with the understanding that big technology companies leverage microtargeting to mobilize their users to take tech-friendly political action. We will be joined by Professors Abbey Stemler and Ira Rubinstein, who will discuss the challenges presented by this relatively new form of political power and its effects on individual autonomy and deliberative democracy.
