Critical literacies in mis/disinformation literacy instruction

Lenoir and Anderson (2023) argue that addressing historical, structural, and political inequality, particularly in relation to race, ethnicity, and social difference, is crucial and cannot be solely resolved through technical solutions. While current approaches in libraries and information studies focus on media and digital literacy to combat mis/disinformation, there are limitations in understanding the systemic relationship between media, digital information platforms, and systems of oppression. This paper aims to identify and promote the adoption of critical approaches to disinformation literacy instruction in libraries and information studies as an effective pedagogical practice, emphasizing the importance of recognizing and addressing underlying socio-political factors.
