The workshop takes place in English (June 14) and Portuguese (June 15) and focuses on the processes and implications of threats to digital security, based on a critical analysis of the use of technologies and the construction of narratives. Structured around four main questions – why? how? what? and what implications? – explores the technology-policy nexus, looking at various ways to manipulate information and construct narratives to better understand its impact on national and international politics. This workshop aims to highlight the centrality of discursive contexts and technological possibilities in the construction of knowledge practices, in an interdisciplinary perspective, bringing computational analysis, linguistics and international relations to the dialogue. This is an innovative approach, much needed to overcome narrow and static readings in an area of ​​inquiry as fundamental to our lives as it is to international politics.
