Recent surveys have shown a significant spike in online hate speech. The opportunity provided by social and online media to be highly personal, or derogatory, about others on the anonymity of the web has seen an escalation in hostile and disrespectful views being expressed.

What are the politics behind this trend? And what is the impact on those targeted? How do we define hate, and particularly hate speech? And should we, as part of a liberal democracy that is currently reviewing hate speech laws in the wake of the Christchurch terror attacks, be concerned?

Event details:
Time: Doors open at 5.45pm. Lecture runs 6.00pm - 7.00pm.
