Symposium on Cyber-Hate: Defining and Combating Antisemitism and Hate Speech Online; Session 1: Translating Hate in the Digital World
February 4, 2021 @ 9:00 am - 10:30 amFree
This symposium will explore the phenomenon of cyber-hate. What are the key issues and manifestations? What are the appropriate responses to online hate? What are the frameworks available — legal, social, technological — and possible constraints to responding? How do we evaluate the success of various solutions?
The first session (February 4), titled Translating Hate in the Digital World, will define the scope of the problem of cyber-hate and its manifestations, with a particular focus on religion, race, and gender. Chris Wolf (Chair, ADL National Committee on the Internet & Hogan Lovells LLP) will keynote this session, and and we have invited Prof. Brendesha Tynes, (USC, Education/Psychology, Digital Learning and Development Lab); Vlad Khaykin (ADL); and Prof. Debbie Ging (Dublin City) to participate in the panel. The panel will delve deeper into defining the problem: How do different forms of hate manifest themselves differently online? How can we educate ourselves to recognize racism and discrimination in their different online forms?
