The seminar addresses the origins and developmental stages of the misogynistic culture that has grown on the web in recent years. It starts with the role played by the affirmation of postfeminist culture, before examining the characteristics of gender-based hate communities that proliferate online and the specific contribution given to them by the particular configuration of web-mediated socialization. Annalisa Verza is Associate Professor of Sociology and Philosophy of Law at the University of Bologna.
