Attacks against Women: From the Web to the Physical World

Dear colleagues,


You are warmly invited to this online seminar co-organised by the Violence, Conflict and Gender cluster within the Centre for Advanced Studies in Languages and Cultures (CASiLaC) at UCC and the CECS (Centro de Estudos de Comunicação e Sociedade) at the University of Minho.


Attacks against Women: From the Web to the Physical World


Annalisa Verza, University of Bologna


@2pm on Wednesday 14 April


The seminar will address the origins and developmental stages of the misogynistic culture that has gradually taken hold on the web in recent years. This path will start from the role played by the affirmation of postfeminist culture, to then examine the characteristics of gender-based hate communities that proliferate online as well as the specific contribution given to them by the particular configuration of web-mediated socialization.

The seminar is co-organised by the CASiLaC research cluster on Violence, Conflict and Gender and the CECS (Centro de Estudos de Comunicação e Sociedade) at University of Minho.


No registration needed. Zoom link: https://videoconf-colibri.zoom.us/j/85231807074
