This session seeks to highlight digital tools and strategies for a critical digital pedagogy and to come up with ideas for possible new projects, such as mapping, searchable databases, digital archives, interactive web documentaries, crowdsourcing, or digital radio, that would facilitate collaboration in responding to cyberhate. Responses might include facilitating counter-speech, monitoring and reporting, pursuing legislation, self-care, and other communicative, programming, and social actions.
The topic of cyberhate lies at the crossroads of identity, intersectionality, online cultures, and digital humanities. In the United States and globally, online hate has become a major concern for several groups as online misogyny, racial and ethnic bigotry, xenophobia, homophobia, and transphobia have become communicative events that occur more frequently.
First, I want to discuss the forms of cyberhate that happen online.
