In this panel, we will discuss emergent research methodologies surrounding the spread of disinformation in Brazil, focusing in particular on the 2019 Amazon fires. Our team will outline various Twitter and open source intelligence (OSINT) analysis methods by which disinformation can be tracked and how YouTube connections can be networked and graphed. We will also discuss the diverse tactics utilised by the Bolsonaro administration and its supporters to perpetuate a narrative about the fires based on disinformation.
