LA&PS Research to Impact Workshop: Confronting Online Hate and Harassment of Academic Researchers

Abuse directed at researchers seeking to promote or discuss their work in online forums is widespread and growing. Disproportionately, this abuse targets female, racialized, trans and other marginalized researchers across academic disciplines. The effects of this abuse – which includes criminal conduct – can be profoundly damaging to the research programs, the confidence, and the wellbeing and sense of safety of affected scholars. This LA&PS workshop draws on the insights and efforts of our researchers including our graduate students, who have been thinking how we should respond to this phenomenon.

Please join us in discussing how we can ensure that our researchers are prepared, supported and protected when navigating the harms of online hate and harassment. Panelists include faculty members and graduate students from Communications and Media Studies, Gender, Feminist and Women’s Studies, Social Work and Politics.

When: Jun 23, 2023 10:00 AM Eastern Time (US and Canada)
