International Conference on Online Hate Speech

Thursday 7 – Saturday 9 July 2022, Braga, Portugal


Registration opens 1 May 2022

We are pleased to announce the Braga INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON ONLINE HATE SPEECH, which will take place at the University of Minho, Portugal, on 7-9 July 2022. We earnestly expect that Covid restrictions will be over by July all over Europe, so we can enjoy a pleasant, relaxed in-person meeting.

The conference stems from a three-year project involving researchers from five European countries, in which a large corpus of online verbal interactions was extracted from social media and annotated for analysis. The analytical results will be presented at the conference, which aims to attract external participation from scholars and students interested in the widespread and ever-growing expression of hate, prejudice and discrimination in computer-mediated social platforms.

The conference intends to be an interdisciplinary venue for discussion of online hate speech. As such, it accepts contributions from various scientific areas, such as:

  • Linguistics (Corpus Linguistics, Discourse Analysis, Pragmatics, Sociolinguistics, etc.)
  • Media Studies
  • Communication Studies
  • Social Sciences
  • Computer Science
  • Psychology
  • Law
  • Political Philosophy
  • Education

Keynote speakers include:

– Fabienne BAIDER, a Full Professor of Linguistics at the University of Cyprus

– Eckhard BICK, a German-born linguist who works as a researcher in computational linguistics at the University of Southern Denmark

– Victoria GUILLÉN-NIETO, the author of Hate Speech: Linguistic Approaches (deGruyter, 2022)
