Social Processes of Online Hate Conference (UCSB Center for Information Technology & Society and the Arthur N. Rupe Biannual Conference)

The expression of hate online—racism, sexism, religious bigotry, xenophobia, and other forms—is widely recognized as one of the biggest problems with social media. On May 11, 2023, UCSB will hold a full-day conference at Mosher Alumni Hall involving leading scholars whose work addresses a “social processes” approach to online hate. The event is sponsored by the Center for Information Technology and Society (Professor Joe Walther), the Arthur N. Rupe Chair in the Social Effects of Mass Media (Professor Ronald E. Rice), the UCSB Center for Black Studies Research, and other prospective supporters. Click here for the conference site.
