Reporters and researchers working in newsrooms and at academic institutions are invited to a 1-hour training session with the Technology and Social Change team at Harvard’s Shorenstein Center, to learn how to investigate and analyze Telegram.

As Russia’s war on Ukraine escalates, Telegram continues to be an increasingly vital source of news for people in Ukraine and Russia. It is also a place where journalists and information researchers must pay attention in order to track information operations, the information ecosystem, and the dissemination of misinformation and disinformation.

In this crash course, our experts will walk you through the history, structure, and research potential of Telegram. We will offer hands-on demonstrations and tips for navigating and using Telegram in your reporting.
