21/11/2022 @ 16:00 - 20:00

Goethe-Zentrum Eriwan invites you on 21-22 November to an event for Armenian and Russian experts on media literacy and current issues of the media community.
– On 21.11.2022 at 17:00: a lecture by Irina Lukyanova „Critical thinking, fact-checking, fake news in materials for school children under the state monopoly on information.“
– On 21.11.2022 at 18:30: a lecture by Samvel Martirosyan „Media Literacy and Media Society in Armenia: Current Situation, Problems, Prospects.“
The working languages of the lectures and discussions are Armenian and Russian.
The events will take place as part of a joint program between Goethe-Institut and the project “How to Read Media.”
About the panelists:
Irina Lukyanova, teacher and journalist, on how specialists in critical thinking and media literacy in Russia are currently adapting their programs to the new realities.
In February 2022, the word „fake“ changed its meaning in Russia. The country’s legislation introduced criminal liability for „disseminating false information.“ In fact, a state monopoly on information has been introduced in the country, leading to the closure of most independent media outlets. The words „critical thinking,“ „fact-checking,“ and „fake news“ have also changed their meanings in materials developed for schoolchildren throughout the country. How should media literacy and critical thinking be taught now? Irina Lukyanova invites us to reflect on this together and to share our experiences with our colleagues in Yerevan.
The lecture will be held in Russian, with a translation into Armenian.
Samvel Martirosyan, Co-founder of CyberHUB, Strategic advisor at SoftConstructand and digital security specialist, on what approaches to media literacy exist in Armenia, what problems and challenges the media community faces today and how they are being addressed.
The development of media literacy and media education is closely linked to the state of the media community: teaching and developing curricula in this field cannot be done by educators alone. What initiatives and programs operate in Armenia in order to develop media literacy? How do they relate to the state of journalism in the country? What problems and challenges are being addressed first and foremost? What experiences could be shared with other countries? How is Armenia included in the global media literacy agenda? Samvel Martirosyan will talk about it and answer all questions on media literacy in Armenia.
The lecture will be held in Armenian and translated into Russian.
