Online harassment and hate speech: gendered dimensions

Wednesday 13 October 2021, 13:00 CET, online


Part of the Digital Europe Economic seminars organised by the University of Warsaw DELab team, the upcoming meeting (October 13th, 13:00 CET) will feature dr Marjan Nadim and dr Audun Fladmoe of the Institute for Social Research in Norway who will present on the topic “Online harassment and hate speech: gendered dimensions”.

The presentation will present empirical findings from several population-based surveys about experiences with online harassment and hate speech in Norway, and how these vary in different groups of the population. We will in particular emphasise the gender dimension on online harassment. We examine whether women experience more—and different—online harassment than men. Furthermore, we are concerned with the potential of different types of online harassment to silence its targets, and whether there are gendered patterns in how online harassment works as a silencing mechanism.
