Nina Jankowicz '11 majored in political science at Bryn Mawr and is now a fellow at the Woodrow Wilson Center’s Kennan Institute.
She writes about The Only Way to Defend Against Russia’s Information War in the September 25 New York Times.
"All is not lost. Disinformation can be defeated without the establishment of a shiny new initiative cased in the language of Cold War 2.0. Instead of 'rapid information operations,' the United States should work to systematically rebuild analytical skills across the American population and invest in the media to ensure that it is driven by truth, not clicks."
The focus of Bryn Mawr's Department of Political Science is on analytical sophistication rather than on knowledge of a body of facts. Graduates learn to think critically about political life in a variety of settings.
